Metallurgy is one of the key areas of the Czech processing industry. It is closely intertwined with the supply and demand, construction, mining, energy and transportation areas/industries. Steelmaking companies employ a large number of people across the whole range of education levels. The production of Czech industries has in general been growing over the past five years. However, this is not the case of the metallurgical industry, which has rather stagnated or even declined in the Czech Republic over the past ten years. In line with the dynamic development of the economy, the job market currently boasts the highest employment rates in Czech history and companies are actively competing for every competent employee. This article analyses the relationship between the development of production in the metallurgical industry and the development of employment in this branch over the last five years. The conclusion then presents the possible future development for both of these monitored parameters.Keywords: Employment rate, Metallurgy, Production
