Background and Objectives: One of the most important challenges facing human resource experts is proving the role of these resources in value creation of the organization. With the advent of knowledge organizations in the knowledge-based economy, the share of human capital in the value creation of the organization has surpassed the physical and structural capital and heavy investments in human resources to make them the main factor justified competitive advantages. Since efficient and value-creating manpower is the most valuable resource of any organization, most of the investments are focused on human resources. The most important tool used for this purpose is training, which is used with the aim of improving the quality of skills, knowledge and attitudes that enable people to perform their duties and the success of the organization. In a dynamic and efficient organization, employees need new training and new skills to regain the success of their careers and to be equipped with what is needed for high-standard training. Manpower training courses include programs and activities designed to improve employee performance with the aim of solving current performance problems and preventing future problems of the organization. It is also an approach whose main purpose is to change and teach employees and increase the skills needed to perform job duties more effectively. This research has  sought to explain the development model of the system supporting electronic performance with the human resource rewarding approach in governmental organizations.
