Czech Republic HR and Recruitment
When expanding a business to the Czech Republic you'll need to make a few decisions in terms of staffing: decide if you can and want to relocate existing employees, and the processes required to employ foreign nationals.
Employing Foreign Nationals
The fundamental thing to comprehend when it comes to employing indigenous workers is the law in the Cezch Republic. Depending on your location, the employment of staff can be affected by many extraneous factors, such as longevity of service, social charges, collective agreements, qualification and experience, etc.
In some countries, employing a certain amount of indigenous workers is mandatory. Since the Czech Republic became a member of the EU, any worker from an EU member country can work and live there without a visa or work permit.
Yet again, plucking talent from neighbouring countries may not come without its woes in the Cezch Republic. Make sure you know the legislative restrictions and allowances of such a practice. Conditions for employing foreigners in the Czech Republic are laid down in the Law on employment according to which foreigners or persons without citizenship may be employed in the territory of the Czech Republic provided that they were granted an employment permit and residence permit.
Perhaps you need someone with talent, experience and reliability. Someone you can trust. Someone with the right understanding of your business to join you overseas. And why not. But you must consider both the cost-effectiveness of such a move, and the laws that preside over it.
