The percentage of people who quit their jobs of their own free will is also unfavourable, so they quit in 2019 – a full 60%. In the future, this trend seems unlikely to stop. In surveys (by LMC), 14% of those surveyed confided that they were actively looking for a new job, and a full third of all employees are willing to listen to interesting offers at least. People are willing to change jobs and are more proactive about it because they feel confident and believe the economy is doing well.

- A shortage of qualified staff is expected. While so far, employees have been mainly absent from the labour and manufacturing professions. This implies the need for a change in the setting up of the work motivation and evaluation system, as the needs of skilled workers are different.
- Taking into account economic influences (Brexit, German automotive industry ad.) there may be a so-called staffing paradox, whereby, on the one hand, the firm dismisses people for redundancy — mainly from manufacturing and from redundant THP, while recruiting — into development, innovation and commerce. This paradox, or the measures associated with it, can lead to conflicts within the company, and there is a need to prepare for them, too.
- The volume of corporate orders is slowing considerably (especially for those firms tied to German industry). In addition, multinational groups are working intensively on optimizations to reduce costs. These optimizations do not always reach Czech branches, but at least they are known to be, and they are known to be, in themselves, preparing for much more radical steps in the future. Layoffs have already started in some firms and, if not with him directly, preparatory work, staff and capacity audits, moving some of the staff to external resources, for sure. One can assume that this problem will deepen.
- Industrial companies, in particular, have lived on the theme of “digitising industry” in recent years. The question remains how many companies have managed to make the change in real terms. In 2020, these changes are expected to continue. But not to be “trendy and modern,” but because of the real need for product innovation, a service, to increase customer comfort. In this situation, management will be forced to incentivise its employees into performances that may not only be different than they have been, but also against their internal beliefs as well as the firm’s discourse to date. The transition to these changes will not be easy. There will be a need to prepare for the emergence of new jobs related to automation and robotization.
Working hours – there are lively discussions and first attempts to unwind working hours. At a time of automation and robotization, do you need to go to work for eight and a half hours five days a week? Extremes speak of unlimited leave. Don’t be alarmed, the practice showed that as a result, workers then took less time off than before.
There will be a need to adapt the behaviour and values of the new generation, while preparing for a currently employable population to age and decline in the coming years. Already five years from now, there will be 195,000 fewer people in the Czech labour market than today, and 400,000 fewer within 15 years. According to data from the Czech Statistical Office, the labour market is really still dwindling. But employers make matters worse for themselves by ignoring certain groups of candidates, especially older people and parents who are interested in returning from parental work early to part-time work. Meanwhile, groups long pushed to the brink of employer interest make up a full two-thirds of the 44,000 people who have reappeared on the market in the first quarter of this year. So there is a lack of part-time work and a willingness to employ older staff.
Employing foreigners will become a standard source of recruitment to both manufacturing and skilled jobs in the year.
- There will also continue to be a great hunger for people in IT, commerce and services.
I wish you every success in 2020 with the support of your team and staff. And remember: ‘good luck to the prepared.’
