 Abstract.The authors of the study draw attention to the factors making the workforce leave the Slovak labour market to work abroad. Survey respondents worked abroad. There is no institution in the Slovak Republic keeping records about the number of Slovaks who study and work abroad. There are only estimates available based on secondary information, such as registration of citizens with health insurance  companies. In the future, labour shortages will become a serious problem not only for developed EU countries, but also for the Slovak Republic. Therefore, it is necessary to analyse the reasons why, especially young people, decide to leave Slovakia to work abroad.

The purpose of the study is to analyse selected areas of issues arising from the questionnaire survey conducted by the Department of  Management and Human Resource Development of the Faculty of Social and Economic Relations  from  November  2015  to   January   2016. 658 respondents participated in the survey, and the questionnaire contained 34 questions with 6 attributive descriptions. The findings related to the selected areas of issues are presented in the study..
