Training is actually an investment made to human capital. Its benefits are shared by the firm, trainee himself and also by the society. Trainee gets higher wages on his improved performance; while firm's profitability is enhanced due to increase in efficiency level. Similarly society is also benefited in two ways; externals from the society are paid by the firm for the training and there is also an addition of skilled and efficient people in the society.

The main aim of the research is to identify the impact of Information Technology of the overall productivity of the firm and its employees. The research also focuses on understanding the impact of implementing information technology training on employees' performance and productivity. Information technology training has been observed to enhance and increase the skill level and knowledge of the employees, thereby increasing their productivity within the firm. In order to compete, some organisations have turned to information technology to help provide more valuable goods and services at a lower price. This should ultimately help the company become more profitable. According to Dedrick et al. (2003), "Studies have failed to identify a relationship between IT (information technology) investment and firm profitability (p.11)." When studying previous research and literature, there is inconclusive evidence whether information technology has had a positive impact on organisational performance and productivity. The term 'productivity paradox' describes information technology's inability to increase productivity. Enhanced information technology skills among employees resulted in higher productivity, organisational performance, and firm output. Companies with high information technology efficiency ratings have reported higher return on sales than companies with low efficiency ratings.
