At FMP, we practice flexibility every day – not just in specific situations, but in our work arrangements. Many employees based out of our office in Shirlington, VA work remotely 1 – 2 days a week; however, we also have full-time remote employees located across the country. We are proud to share the best practices, tools, and techniques we use to help other organizations support a productive virtual work environment.

In this video blog (vlog), we use Microsoft Teams to interview three full-time remote employees at FMP – Ashley Agerter Raitor, Emily Fairbairn, and Mike Camburn. These seasoned FMPers share their personal teleworking experiences, suggestions for staying connected with teams, and insight into how to maintain a successful remote work arrangement. We ask them a variety of questions, including:

  • What are the pros and cons of working remotely?
  • How do you build and maintain relationships with clients and colleagues?
  • What strategies do you use to stay motivated and focused?
  • How do you keep work and home life separate from each other?
  • What are the benefits for employers in supporting telework arrangements, especially in times like these when employees need to practice social distancing?
