Restoring the prestige of the sales profession should be one of the goals of the Czech Republic in apprenticeship education. It is an important and highly valued profession. This was stated by the President of the Union of Employees of Trade Renáta Burianová during a professional discussion at the Žofín Palace in Prague on Thursday on the occasion of the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the Billa chain in the Czech Republic. According to her, the system of apprenticeship education in the Czech Republic is “tragic”. We will have many people with a high school education, but there will be a lack of qualified staff in the store, she added.
Statistics from the Ministry of Education show that there were 90,641 pupils in fields with an apprenticeship certificate last year, 88,783 a year earlier. The number of apprentices in schools has increased in the last two years, which is related to demographic development. The number of high school students as a whole has also increased. There were 432,906 of them in the past school year.
The new CEO of Billa ČR, Dariusz Tomasz Bator, said on Thursday that it is difficult to find quality employees, even though working in a store is not easy. Bill employs about 6,500 people. According to the head of the company’s human resources department, Šárka Brennerová, 80 percent are women, the average age is 34 years and the average length of employment is six years.
According to Brenner, working in retail is still the domain of Czechs. According to her, 95 percent of workers in the Bill network are Czechs, if it included Slovak citizens, it would be 98 percent.
According to an earlier finding, the coronavirus pandemic in food chain representatives did not have a direct or minimal impact on staff turnover. Companies are trying to reduce it in the long run or at least keep it stable.
According to the Platy.cz portal, a Czech seller earns from 18,000 to 39,000 crowns gross per month, depending on the region and employer. According to the Czech Statistical Office (CSO), the average wage in the Czech Republic rose by 11.3 percent year on year to CZK 38,275 in the second quarter of this year. In gross terms, employees received an average of 3,893 crowns more than a year ago.
