The current labour market is characterized by the lack of qualified candidates for all industries. There are ever less students of technical branches in all levels of the education system and this fact has negative influences mainly on manufacturing sectors. Czech foundries have had problems in finding suitable employees even during times of a higher unemployment rate, when the labour market was offering more candidates, so today the lack of candidates for them is really critical. Although foundries often offer higher than average salaries, young people prefer physically less demanding work for lower salaries and their fluctuation has been significantly increasing. The paper therefore focused on the main problems of human resource management in the selected foundry with the aim of finding, discussing and proposing potential solutions for more effective employee recruitment and motivation.Keywords: Human Resource, Recruitment, Motivation, Foundry
