Media language:

Information channels
A lively commercial broadcasting sector provides stiff competition for public service outlets. Public Ceska Televize (CT) operates several networks, including 24-hour news channel CT24. Public radio, Cesky Rozhlas (CRo), runs national and local stations. The leading private TV channels Nova and Prima broadcast nationally. There are scores of privately-owned radio stations, including Impuls and Frekvence 1. The media operate relatively freely and without undue government constraints, says Freedom House in its 2019 country report. But it says there are concerns about the concentration of media ownership among wealthy business figures and the “potential impact of this on journalists’ ability to investigate commercial interests”.

Glass Ceiling Index
53.2 out 100, ranked 25th out of 29 countries.

The glass-ceiling index measures the environment for working women combining data on higher education, labor-force participation, pay, child-care costs, maternity and paternity rights, business-school applications, and representation in senior jobs.

The Czech Republic is among the most “ethnically homogeneous” countries in Europe (some 95% of the population are ethnic Czechs or “Moravians”).

Women are considered the “weaker gender” and are treated with particular respect. They command certain privileges in most workplaces and other situations. (This does not mean pay equality. Women are generally still paid less than men).

Graduates (tertiary education)
Among 25-64 year-olds in the Czech Republic, the most common tertiary qualification is a master’s degree, held by 17% of adults compared to 6% for a bachelor’s degree. This is in contrast to most OECD countries where the majority of tertiary-educated adults hold a bachelor’s degree. Overall, the share of 25-64 year-old tertiary-educated adults in the Czech Republic is 14 percentage points below the OECD average (24% compared to 39%). Although tertiary attainment is higher among 25-34 year-olds (33%), it remains below the OECD average.

The Czechs are one of the most religiously uninvolved people on the planet, a fact supported by all available statistics. Despite the fact that almost half of the population admit that they belong to some faith (namely the Catholic Church), most do not attend church services or follow any religious practices. At the same time, more than 40% of Czechs declare that they are “non-religious” or “atheist”. With only a very few exceptions, this issue has no significance at all in the workplace.
