    In the current knowledge economy employees are considered to be the key competitive advantage because their knowledgee represents the most valuable asset of the organization. When employees leave an organization, they take their knowledge with them. The loss of knowledge represents a potential threat for organizations, in particular if employee with critical knowledge leaves to join a competitor. The article concentrates on the ensuring of knowledge continuity as a possibility of eliminating the threat of loss of knowledge, in case of personnel changes. The objective of the article is to examine the level of ensuring of knowledge continuity in organizations in Czech Republic and to identify the factors affecting the ensuring of knowledge continuity. Ensuring the knowledge continuity was analyzed by means of the quantitative and the qualitative survey. The organization, in which the knowledge continuity is systematically ensured, if an employee leaves, the organization will not lose his/her critical knowledge since it has already been transferred in some form to other employee. In result the quality of organization processes can be preserved and development and decision-making improved.
