Czech Republic -Increased willingness to move for a job -October 11, 2013

70% of respondents in a survey among 300 employees said they were willing to move for a job and nearly a third would even move to abroad, while 30% would not move under any circumstances. People aged below 30 would move in 75% of cases, while only 65% of older people would opt for a change. According to the researchers, women came out a bit more flexible as regards moving as 75% of women and 67% of men would leave their home. The authors conclude that women are beginning to gain an increasingly stronger position on the labour market, are more ambitious and also more willing to adjust to the employers’ demands.
