Werk ze! is a fairly new organization. So of course, not everyone will know what we do. For this reason, we often get the question, What Werk ze! actually is.

Where does the name Werk ze! come from?

Werk ze! is a widely used term in the Dutch language. It is used when someone is on their way to work, as a way to wish him success. Then you usually say Werk ze!. Onze Taal defines Werk ze! as:

‘Something like’ Have a nice day. ‘

Taaladvies.net goes a little further in their description and commentary of it, saying:

Werk ze! can be described as “Have a nice day at work “, “Success with work or Work good today.”

You don’t write it as werkze, but as two separate words. The name Werk ze! came out of us wanting to wish you all  the best with the next challenge in your professional career. Officially you write the name of our organization with an exclamation mark at the end. Now that you know the meaning of work it! is, we can move on to the next question. What is it exactly?
