The Olomouc Region disposes of a relatively high potential of human resources.
In terms of level of education, the Olomouc Region ranges to the CR’s most forward regions. However, the branch structure of education does not meet the employers’ needs.
The education structure is supported by a dense network of primary schools, secondary schools and one university residing in the regional capital, two private colleges and branches of technical universities.
A disadvantage is the non-existence of technical specializations at the local university (thence, the region has the nationwide highest rate of persons with non-technical education). In consequence, we face a shortage of technically qualified job candidates.
The region sees its strong opportunities of development of strategic and commercial services.
The region’s labour market is inconsistent, corresponds to the demographic structure.
As per registered unemployment rate, the Olomouc Region has shown in a long term view one of the highest rates in the Czech Republic.
The region is also weaker in terms of the average monthly income, being approximately 2 % below the national average.
