Information technology is one of rising sectors which has become the basic need in every another industry or sector. Use of information technology has increased the working capacity of human beings than before, it has now become much easier to collect huge amount of information in a single device and avoided stress due to manual arrangements.

Along with this, the impact of information technology on the life of humans have also been discussed that how they have produced changes than earlier.

3. Research Methodology:

3.1 Research Design

Research Design helps to answer the question like what topic to be searcher, from where the search for the research topic should be started, what steps or information should be involved to make a stable research report etc. In this research expensive tools and Accurate & existing data have been used to gather information regarding the topic of research.

3.2 Research Philosophy

The primary focus is on the positivism part of the study. The data has been collected with the help of feedback from the employees which will further help the organization to judge whether decisions taken by them is good for their employees or not.
