About Djøf

As a foreign national in Denmark, it pays to be a member of a strong association. Djøf represents approx. 90,000 academics working at all levels of the private and public sectors. You are welcome too.

Denmark is a knowledge society where many jobs require employees with long-term educations who take responsibility and help their workplace to develop. Most Danish workplaces are founded on close and open cooperation between the management and employees.

Salaries and working conditions are largely regulated by collective agreements that are negotiated by organisations representing employers and wage earners, respectively. Without Government intervention.

In Denmark, about seven in ten employees are members of a wage earner organisation.

Djøferne sidder for meget ned

Djøfere er højt placeret på listen over, hvor meget folk sidder ned på jobbet, viser ny forskning. Men er det et problem? Vi har spurgt Mette Korshøj Larsen, som forsker i stillesiddende arbejde ved Det Nationale Forskningscenter for Arbejdsmiljø.

Skal man have et andet job, før man siger op?

Måske har du brugt din sommerferie på at overveje din jobsituation. Men du tør ikke sige dit job op, før end at du har et andet på hånden. Hvornår skal man sige et job op? Hvornår er det smart at blive?
