When joining industry 4.0 and human resources, the greatest concern is associated with the impact of the modernization of production processes and thus the loss of jobs, especially in the case of unskilled and less skilled human resources that will be replaced by robotics. On the other hand, a whole range of other jobs can be expected to address more complex situations that may arise in the production process, its development or after-sales service. All these activities in the foreseeable future can not be assumed to have satisfactorily mastered the artificial intelligence of robots. However, these positions will have to be occupied by skilled workers, who will have both technical education and the ability of analytical thinking leading to the most effective solution of the situation. The aim of the paper is to evaluate the Czech Republic's preparedness for industry 4.0 in the field of human resources and compare the dependencies of sub-indicators that predict the greater adaptability of human capital to the emergence of new technologies and systems. Data was obtained by combining databases in EUROSTAT, the Czech Statistical Office and the OECD. For the sake of clarity, the results were summarized in the graphs and their interdependence was statistically compared.
