Methods: The methodology begins with defining a research problem. Research questions are formulated, a questionnaire is created, the basic sample of respondents is identified and a pilot study and a semi-structured interview verifying some of the questionnaire questions are conducted. Subsequently, a questionnaire survey is realized. The data obtained are filled in the Excel software and the results are presented by figures and verbal description. By answering the research questions, the methodology is fulfilled.
Findings & Value added: The research revealed a great discrepancy between the assumed and declared state in the field of work with intellectual capital and employee’s education. It shows the weaknesses being relevant to our country as well as abroad.
