- The Czech labour market shows signs of polarisation; demand is rising for high-skilled and to a lower extent for low skilled workers.
- Employment growth is expected to be slower than the EU as a whole.
- Healthcare and social services together with business & other services are expected to create the majority of new jobs in years to come.
- The lack of high-skilled workers with a degree in technical and natural sciences remains a key concern and a potential hindrance for the provision of technology and knowledge-intensive production and services.

- IT skills (especially high-level ones) remain of short supply in the country.
