One of the tools to eliminate the loss of knowledge of qualified staff that holds knowledge critical for the given organisation is the application of the knowledge continuity conception which focuses in particular on the transfer of knowledge from the leaving employee to his/her successor. The objective of the article is to analyse use of employee mobility information in organisations and apply its results on knowledge continuity ensuring. The article has been processed based on the analysis of secondary sources, outcome synthesis and the evaluation of results of a questionnaire surveys. Knowledge continuity ensuring as an internal force can, together with the right employees, help the organisation to adapt more quickly to external conditions that the organisation practically cannot control. The advantages of knowledge continuity applying and its impact on employee mobility are mentioned as well. Summary, mobility is not usually managed in referred organisations and effort to objectively solve negative employee mobility have only minimum of referred managers. Thus, intervention to the system of mobility management is suggested together with greater emphasis of top management to already existing practices, which are very often ignored by line managers.
