This process can be seen as SHRM (Strategic Human Resources Management) which plays a vital role in the evolution of HR personnel’s as well as their job jurisdiction. Hence, this study focused on the ‘Impact SHRM (strategic human resource management) practices has on performance management within the IT sector in Nigeria. The study was drawn on resource-based and contingency theory and it focuses on the extent of influence SHRM has on organizational and employee performance within their respective organizations. This was derived on the premise that most studies are of the opinion that SHRM has impacted most organizations, thus it is imperative that the researcher investigate the implementation of these practices especially in the technology sector as there are limited studies that handle this issue. The researcher adopted the quantitative research method to answer both the main research questions as well as sub research question, this is to ensure that employees of both companies (NIIT and SBSC) are able to provide sufficient answer.

Furthermore, this study utilized survey research instrument and SPSS software to enable the researcher statistically analyze and interpret data derived from stated questions. Hence, the study took the descriptive form and applied Pearson correlation method to test its significance. The study adopted positivist cross sectional research with an online method to distribute constructed survey question and get across targeted employees ranging from senior managers to entry level staff within both organizations available to answer the questions. These questions are closed ended question that varied from strongly agree to strongly disagree using the Likert scale format with a total of 82 respondents to enable us interpret possible data hence recommendations and conclusions given at the end of the study.
