This paper proposes an evaluation that how in a small business scenario, the bits and pieces of knowledge can be seen scattered at different work locations and how the management can strategically arrange and manage a viable data resource in the form of existing knowledge base to be retrieved as and when required. In the current research study, the authors tried to prove the logic by taking an example of an organizational scenario (i.e., Medicare Hospital) by displaying the positive effects of implementing an organizational knowledge management technique - i.e., HRIS, to not only streamline the effective data storage but to eliminate the redundant organizational activities associated with the duplication of knowledge collection as well as unwanted management operations and excessive storage of record keeping work processes. Current study confirmed the worth of information and communication technologies (ICT) supported human resource information system (HRIS). The findings of the study confirmed organizational control over existing work knowledge with speed, efficiency, economy and accuracy at the crucial times for the best organizational strategic decision making in line with sustainable corporate competitiveness.
