Czech Republic: Women ask for a third less pay for top jobs
Salary expectations differ significantly between men and women in the Czech Republic, according to an analysis by the recruitment agency Profesia.cz. The agency examined over 50,000 CVs and found that women asked for considerably lower monthly earnings than men when applying for the same position. This was the case across all positions examined. The most significant difference in expected salary was among applicants for top managerial positions, with women looking for 32% less than men. Women also looked for substantially lower pay than men in the IT sector (lower by 21%) and human resources (lower by 15%). The smallest difference was found in the marketing and media sector.
