The organization continually endeavors to create and improve the information on representatives associated with key business measures. It expects to make organization information in accomplishing upper hand. Inside an organization, the division that assumes the main part in obliging representatives' information needs is the Human Resource Department (HRD). Prior to building up information the board framework in an organization, particularly the Human Resources Department, it is important to direct a more inside and out investigation in regards to the effect that the organization has in the wake of executing the information the executive's framework, so partners can comprehend the effect that information the board has on an organization, particularly the HR Department. Subsequently, to control the HR Department to execute Knowledge Management, this precise writing survey (SLR) will try to address this inquiry: "what is the positive and negative impact that Knowledge Management brings to an organization, particularly Human Resource Department?". We led a Systematic Literature Review of 3006 remarkable papers distributed until 2020, and we included 25 essential investigations. The outcome shows Knowledge sharing carries the most effect on association execution, in spite of the fact that there are still moves identified with how people connect and utilize information.
