Women have equal rights under the law in the workplace and Czech women have made great advances during recent years.

Women employees can be found in all areas of commerce and industry. At the same time it should be stated that most senior positions in the Czech Republic are taken by men – as would be the case in many other countries.

Visiting business women should encounter little or no gender bias and will be judged on their professional abilities. Prove you are trustworthy and professional and you will be treated with great courtesy and respect.

This country profile has been produced to give a short overview of some of the key concepts to bear in mind when doing business with contacts in the Czech Republic. It is intended to be an aid to business people who have commercial dealings with counterparties in the country but should not be seen as an exhaustive guide to this topic or as a substitute for more substantial research should there be a need.

With this in mind, we have covered the areas which are key to a better understanding of the cultural mindset underpinning business dealings in the Czech Republic and which are, quite often, extremely different from the approach and thought processes associated with business in other parts of the world.

Therefore this briefing note is broken into short, bite-sized sections on the following topics:

  • Background to business
  • Business Structures
  • Management style
  • Meetings
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Women in business
  • Entertaining
  • Top tips
