Review:

This Research paper stated that the perception of the employees towards training in IT organizations
is more than average and effective which means that training impacts positively on employee’s
performance by generating benefits to both the employees and the organization they work for
through the development of skills, knowledge, abilities, competencies and behaviour.

This research paper also talks about the need for Training in Information Technology Companies
because training plays a significant role in the development of organizations, enhancing
performance as well as increasing productivity, and ultimately putting companies in the best
position to face competition and stay at the top. Companies now know that with the changing
environment, technologies, trend and time, Training and Development is a key essential part of the
employees of an organisation to be on the top in this nail-biting competitive environment.

2. Human resource (HR) challenges for the information technology (IT) industry in
India

Review:

This Research paper stated that there are certain challenges that the Human resource management
faces in the Indian software industry such as:

 The number of employees working in the software industry increased from 242,000 in 2002
to 697,000 in 2004 – almost threefold-making staffing a very time-consuming process.
 The knowledge, skills and abilities of this dynamic industry are constantly changing,
predicting the skills “even two quarters away” seems quite a big challenge. Organizations
rely on line managers’ judgmental techniques to predict future staffing requirements.
 Entry-level employees need intense training or a “finishing school” touch to integrate and
transit into the corporate. Usually, organizations offer about 12 weeks of training where
work-related skills are offered.

Therefore, to overcome all of these the focus should not be only on to attract, motivate and
retain key 'knowledge workers', but also on how to reinvent careers when the loyalty of the
employees is to their 'brain ware' rather than to the organization.
