The 8th Czech CEO Survey confirmed the optimism of Czech business leaders and promising outlook for this year as well as in the medium term. The intensity with which technology is being implemented in the business world is a trend which has already been observed in previous years and there is no CEO among this year’s respondents who wouldn’t take this fact into consideration.
Digital technology is, therefore, an omnipresent phenomenon in our survey. Its application is not limited only to back office, manufacturing or the provision of services and is, with increasing frequency, becoming a part or even the core of products or services. People form a kind of antithesis of digital technologies. Growing businesses in the Czech Republic are starting to struggle to meet their potential in production capacity due to employee shortages. The burden of this desperate deficiency is felt the most intensively in technical and technological fields.
Every CEO survey addresses the question of the functioning of the State. A key topic, once again following a technological direction, is the system of electronic evidence of sales (EET). With some reservations, CEOs expressed overall support for the digitalisation of taxes and public administration. Company leaders in general aspire after a state which is better managed.
We asked them how far they themselves would go to make this happen. Considering the upcoming elections this year, it should certainly not go unnoticed that 7% of respondents would be willing to enter politics.
