Rahman's film career began in 1992 when he started Panchathan Record Inn, a recording and mixing studio in his backyard. It would become the most-advanced recording studio in India,[19] and arguably one of Asia's most sophisticated and high-tech studios.[20]

He initially composed scores for documentaries and jingles for advertisements and Indian television channels. In 1987 Rahman, then still known as Dileep, composed jingles for a line of watches introduced by Allwyn. In 1992, he was approached by director Mani Ratnam to compose the score and soundtrack for his Tamil film, Roja.[19][21]

Cinematographer Santosh Sivan signed Rahman for the Malayalam film Yodha, directed by Sivan's brother Sangeeth Sivan and released in September 1992. The following year, Rahman received the Rajat Kamal (Silver Lotus) award for best music director at the National Film Awards for Roja. The films' score was critically and commercially successful in its original and dubbed versions, led by the innovative theme "Chinna Chinna Aasai". Rahman followed this with successful scores for Tamil–language films for the Chennai film industry, including Ratnam's politically-charged Bombay, the urban Kadhalan, Thiruda Thiruda and S. Shankar's debut film Gentleman (with its popular dance song, "Chikku Bukku Rayile").[22][23][24][25] Rahman collaborated with director Bharathiraaja on Kizhakku Cheemayile and Karuththamma, producing successful Tamil rural folk-inspired scores; he also composed the saxophone score for K. Balachander's Duet.[26][27] The 1995 film Indira and romantic comedies Mr. Romeo and Love Birds also drew attention.[28][29][30] Rahman attracted a Japanese audience with Muthu's success there.[31] His soundtracks are known in the Tamil Nadu film industry and abroad for his versatility in combining Western classical music, Carnatic and Tamil traditional and folk-music traditions, jazz, reggae and rock music.[32][33][34][35] The soundtrack for Bombay sold 12 million copies worldwide,[36] and "Bombay Theme" would later reappear in his score for Deepa Mehta's Fire and a number of compilations and other media. It was featured in the 2002 Palestinian film Divine Intervention and the 2005 Nicolas Cage film, Lord of War. Rangeela, directed by Ram Gopal Varma, was Rahman's Bollywood debut.[37] Successful scores for Dil Se.. and the percussive Taal followed.[38][39] Sufi mysticism inspired "Chaiyya Chaiyya" from the former film and "Zikr" from his score for Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero (which featured elaborate orchestral and choral arrangements).[18] Rahman's score for the Chennai production Minsaara Kanavu won him his second National Film Award for Best Music Direction and a South FilmFare Award for Best Music Direction in a Tamil film in 1997, the latter setting a record of six consecutive wins; he later went on to win the award three consecutive additional times. The musical cues in the scores for Sangamam and Iruvar used Carnatic vocals, the veena, rock guitar and jazz.[40] During the 2000s, Rahman composed popular scores for Rajiv Menon's Kandukondain Kandukondain, Alaipayuthey, Ashutosh Gowariker's Swades, Rang De Basanti[41] and songs with Hindustani motifs for 2005's Water. Rahman has worked with Indian poets and lyricists such as Javed Akhtar, Gulzar, Vairamuthu and Vaali, and has produced commercially-successful soundtracks with directors Mani Ratnam and S. Shankar (Gentleman, Kadhalan, Indian, Jeans, Mudhalvan, Nayak, Boys, Sivaji and Enthiran).[42]

In 2005 Rahman expanded his Panchathan Record Inn studio by establishing AM Studios in Kodambakkam, Chennai, creating the most cutting-edge studio in Asia.[43][44] The following year he launched his own music label, KM Music,[45] with his score for Sillunu Oru Kaadhal.[46] Rahman scored the Mandarin-language film Warriors of Heaven and Earth in 2003 after researching and using Chinese and Japanese classical music,[47] and won the Just Plain Folks Music Award For Best Music Album for his score for 2006's Varalaru (God Father).[48] He co-scored Shekhar Kapur's first British film, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, in 2007[49] and received a Best Composer Asian Film Award nomination at the Hong Kong International Film Festival for his Jodhaa Akbar score.[50] Rahman's music has been sampled for other scores in India,[51] appearing in Inside Man, Lord of War, Divine Intervention and The Accidental Husband. His score for his first Hollywood film, the 2009 comedy Couples Retreat, won the BMI London Award for Best Score.[52] Rahman's score for 2008's Slumdog Millionaire won a Golden Globe and two Academy Awards (a first for an Asian), and the songs "Jai Ho" and "O... Saya" from its soundtrack were internationally successful. His music on 2008's Bollywood Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na was popular with Indian youth; that year, his score for Jodhaa Akbar won critical acclaim, a Best Composer Asian Film Award nomination and IIFA awards for best music direction and score. In 2010, Rahman scored the romantic Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, the sci-fi romance Enthiran and Danny Boyle's 127 Hours, composing for the Imtiaz Ali musical Rockstar; the latter's soundtrack was a critical and commercial success.[53] In 2012 Rahman scored Ekk Deewana Tha and the American drama People Like Us,[54] and collaborated with director Yash Chopra on Jab Tak Hai Jaan.[55] all were positively received.[56] By the end of the year his music for Mani Ratnam's Kadal was critically acclaimed, and the album topped the iTunes India chart for December.[57] In 2013, Rahman had two releases: Raanjhanaa and Maryan. Both were successful, with the former nominated for a number of awards[58][59][60] and the latter the iTunes India Tamil Album of 2013.[61]

The year 2014 was one of the busiest years for Rahman, with him claiming to have worked in 12 films in various languages.[62] While his first release for the year was the Imtiaz Ali's road movie Highway which garnered positive reviews, his very next release was the performance captured animation film Kochadaiiyaan, a Rajinikanth starrer directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth. The film's score and soundtrack garnered huge critical appraise with its score being long-listed at the forthcoming Academy Awards.[63] His next was the score was for the two back to back Hollywood films, Million Dollar Arm and The Hundred Foot Journey, both of which got into the contended list for the original score category nomination at the Oscars. This was followed by the highly successful score for the period drama Kaaviya Thalaivan teaming up with director Vasanthabalan for the first time. His next release was Shankar's supernatural thriller I and K. S. Ravikumar's period action film Lingaa, both of which were highly acclaimed and appreciated upon release.

Background scores
Apart from successful soundtracks, he is also known for highly acclaimed background scores and is considered, one of the finest background-score composers in India.[64] His background scores are often characterised by the usage of subtle orchestration and ambient sounds.[64]

Trained in western classical music, he often employs contemporary instruments such as Guitars, Cello, Flute, Strings, Keyboard, Finger board, Harpejji, Santoor and traditional Indian instruments such as Shehnai, Sitar, Mrudangam, Veenai & Tabla to create scores.

Apart from getting high critical appreciations, several of Rahman's background scores have earned him many prestigious awards ranging from Academy awards to Filmfare awards.[64][65] Some of the films which fetched him appreciations for background scores include Roja, Bombay, Iruvar, Minsara Kanavu, Dil Se.., Taal, Lagaan, The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Swades, Rang De Basanti, Bose: The Forgotten Hero, Guru, Jodhaa Akbar, Raavanan, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, Rockstar, Kadal and Kochadaiiyaan. Among his Hollywood scores, Warriors of Heaven and Earth, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, Million Dollar Arm and The Hundred-Foot Journey received rave reviews. A. R. Rahman received two Academy Awards for Slumdog Millionaire and two Academy Award nominations for 127 Hours. Recently, his scores for Kochadaiiyaan, Million Dollar Arm and The Hundred-Foot Journey have been nominated in the long list released by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.[66][67]

Rahman has also been involved in non-film projects. Vande Mataram, an album of original compositions released for India's 50th anniversary of its independence in 1997,[68][69][70] is one of India's bestselling non-film albums.[71] He followed it with an album for the Bharat Bala–directed video Jana Gana Mana, a collection of performances by leading exponents and artists of Indian classical music.[72] Rahman has written advertising jingles and orchestrations for athletic events, television and Internet media, documentaries and short films,[73] frequently using the Czech Film Orchestra and the Chennai Strings Orchestra.

Workplace Job Design

...characteristic models: task identity, task significance, skill variety, task autonomy, and feedback, (Hackman & Oldham, 1975) by Ali & Rehman (2014). According to Invacevich, Konopaske, & Matterson (2011), “Job design is the process by which managers decide individual tasks and authority”. One of the significance of the roles job design plays is that it provides operational excellence. According to Ali & Rehman (2014), Huselid and Becker (1997) maintained that operational excellence emanates from human resource management systems that also generate financial gains in the organization with the help of job design and its imminent flexibility goals ahead. It depends on the nature of the job, some required role performance, which is found highly recurring on the other and some other jobs display dominant flexibility in the task to be executed (Mueller, Boyer, Price, & Iverson, 1994). “As many human resources professionals have discovered that there is strong impact on the productivity and the motivation and the job satisfaction of employees in the organization” (Ali & Rehman,2014). Additionally, job design helps managers perform better and feel more pleased in response to transitional levels of job demands wherever they recognize effort-reward fairness than managers who recognize under reward unfairness (Janssen, 2001) according to Ali & Rehman (2014). In fact, it’s obvious that motivation also plays an effective role on the performance of employees in the workplace, which......

Adhering to applicable laws and workplace regulations is a necessary requirement (Reed & Bogardus, 2012).

Gauge the skill sets of current employees and seek employees with the correct skill sets. Use inside resources as well as outside resources to seek out talented potential employees. Selection Procedures Hiring practices of today must change with the current workforce requirements. Previously, the selection process relied upon hiring the person with the expertise to perform the requirements of the position for which they were hiring (Bowen, Ledford, & Nathan, 1991). In the past organizations did not consider the qualities and features of the organization and have disregarded the potential employees’ characteristics, rather hiring bodies to fill the slots.

Nursing Resistance of Electronic Documentation

...Resistance of Nurses in Use of Electronic Documentation The field of health information technology for nursing is rapidly growing. Advancements in electronic documentation for health care, such as the electronic medical record (EMR), can be an overwhelming addition to the workload of nurses. There is resistance by nurses in use of electronic documentation (Sharifian, Askarian, Nematolahi, & Farhadi, 2014). It is this writer’s opinion that nurses are under informed regarding the rationale for changes taking place in documentation and the implications. The purpose of this paper is to provide nurses with the basics of the Federal regulations outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH) that require electronic documentation to be compliant and receive reimbursement. It also reviews how data are collected to determine the reimbursement for care (meaningful-use) and its role in evidence-based practice (Wright, Feblowitz, Samal, McCoy, & Sittig, 2014). Included is a review of the negative impact resistance generates on health organization reimbursement and the relevance it has on nurse staffing, jobs, wages, and satisfaction, along with, evidence reinforcing the training and support of nurses as a means to promote proper use of electronic documentation and increase user satisfaction.

To What Extent Is Corporate Social Responsibility (Csr) Beneficial to a Company’s Performance?

...CHAN Ching To (UID 3035102223) To what extent is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) beneficial to a company’s performance? An analysis of the relationship between CSR and financial soundness, quality of marketing, people management and long-term investment value. Introduction Since the late 1990s, corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been increasingly discussed in the society and it slowly becomes one of the important components in the business world (Jenkins, 2005). McWilliams and Siegel (2006) interpret CSR as ‘situations where the firm goes beyond compliance and engages in “actions that appear to further some social good, beyond the interests of the firm and that which is required by law”’. In general, CSR is believed to, in long-term, enhance business performance and boost employee morale. Also, CSR could be a tool to improve company image and to prevent crises (Weber, 2008). This essay argues that CSR has a positive relationship with a company’s performance, meaning that it brings benefits to corporate performance to a large extent. To measure one’s performance, three key aspects are considered, namely financial soundness, quality of marketing and people management. These three aspects are chosen from the criteria for Britain's Most Admired Companies 2014 (Management Today, 2014). Effects of CSR on Financial Soundness One of the most crucial criteria to determine a company’s performance is by analysing its financial soundness. Common......

Employee Engagement

...provide recommendations on how organizations can develop an engaged workforce. Article 1 – Impact of HR Practices on Employee Engagement Defined in the first article, employee engagement is the extent to which an employee’s intellectual & emotional commitment help an organization achieve its desired results. It is the motivation and emotional connection an employee has to his or her job. The authors of this study further comment that employee engagement is the “blistering issue of modern business environment” (Sardar, Rehman, Yousaf, Aijaz 2011). The authors recognize that there are multiple definitions and factors of employee engagement. However, there is an overarching theme that organizations expect their employees to be dedicated to and have a positive attitude toward their work. Additionally, employees should take it upon themselves to further their own knowledge for the benefit of the organization (Sardar, Rehman, Yousaf, Aijaz 2011). Sardar, Rehman, Yousaf, and Aijaz hypothesized that an employee’s engagement is directly related to financial compensation and that the effort and time exerted on a task increases with a rising pay scale. The article also theorizes that motivation is the key measure of employee engagement. In order to test these...

Most of the Human Resource specialist does not know about the details of the jobs in an organization. In order to provide a good vision to the future employees, knowledge and requirements of the jobs can be collected through a process called job analysis (Rehman, 2009). 1.1 Job Analysis Rehman (2009) defined job analysis as a descriptive process of breaking down a specific job into several components by using different types of tools and techniques to establish job requirements. The information obtained will then be organised and evaluated in order to prepare a job description and job evaluation. The job analysis should include information such as the purpose of the job, the nature of the job, the tasks, the expectation and the position in the company hierarchy (Clifford, 2001).

Renewable Energy: the Solution for the Future’s Energy Needs

...Introduction Renewable energy as defined in the glossary of “Renewable Energy; Myths and Obstacles” is a source of energy that regenerates over a period of time. However, this period of time is significantly shorter than the time it takes for nonrenewable energy sources to regenerate. The most common nonrenewable energy source is fossil fuel. Usually renewable energy depends on the sun’s energy to regenerate; solar energy, wind power and hydropower are examples of renewable energy sources that depend on the sun. Renewable energy, also known as clean energy, is becoming a fast growing phenomenon. President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, mentioned in a recent speech that USA spends nearly one billion dollars a day on purchasing oil from other countries. He also stressed on the fact that air pollution caused by those fossil fuels is becoming one of the biggest worldwide problems. On June 15 in the year 2010, he said, “Now, there are costs associated with this transition. And some believe we can’t afford those costs right now. I say we can’t afford not to change how we produce and use energy— because the long-term costs to our economy, our national security, and our environment are far greater.” Renewable energy is the solution for high-energy demands because it is eco-friendly, economical and inexhaustible amongst many other reasons. However, some might argue that it is not reliable and is inefficient. Ecofriendly Renewable energy is considered......

Management and Leadership: Analysis of Perspectives

...The relationship between leadership and management is a question that has puzzled many for as long as people have worked together. How do the two concepts relate, how are they different. Are leadership and management dependent or are they independent activities. Leadership and management are concepts that many use interchangeable but too often these concepts are misunderstood at the highest levels of an organization. This misunderstanding leads to confusion, consternation and sometimes dissension within an organization. I will look at the concepts of leadership and management and examine how other writes understand the relationship these two concepts hold. "If there is a clear distinction between the processes of managing and the process of leading it is between getting others to do - managing - and getting others to want to do - leading." (Kouzes, & Posner, 2008) Managers are given a responsibility to perform certain tasks. They are given resources to accomplish their assignments and are expected to perform within a timeframe. In many cases one resource a manager must deploy are personnel. When a manager is in charge of a group of people we have a tendency to call him a leader. Under the definition Kouzes and Posner have put forth a manager is not a leader. In the process of deploying human resources a manager will give assignments, set deadlines and establish job descriptions for each individual. The manager does not set the vision for the organization. The manager does......

The Importance of Retention Systems in Human Resource Management

...Literature Review (8-10 pages 12 sources) The Importance of Retention Systems in Human Resource Management Abstract Retention systems is one of the most important components of a staffing system within an organization. Human Resources is responsible for obtaining human capital in order for an organization to obtain and maintain productivity and profits. Human capital is a major expense and investment within organizations. If the organization is unable to retain its workers, the organization nets substantial losses on each employee it is not able to retain. Losses presents themselves not only in production costs, but training and development dollars invested in the employees as well, in addition to recruitment and hiring costs. My literature review will introduce and evaluate common types of retention systems used by staffing systems and their effectiveness in the workplace. Author of “An Analysis of Human Resource Information Systems impact on Employees”, Kelly O. Weeks describes the overall basic benefits of Human Resource Information Systems. She states in her article “systems give the organization the ability to consistently develop and manage employees based on the value of an individual's contribution”. The article also describes the various ways in which HR systems can improve job productivity by cutting repetitive work, and increasing the speed in which manual processes are managed. This article provides a basic general educational foundation and working......
