Fresenius Medical Care Embraces Remote Working to Support Colleagues During the Pandemic

2020 has brought about many changes for job seekers – one is the desire to work but remain at safe distance from coworkers.  We support this new "socially distant workspace" and have embraced remote working as a part of our new culture.  Where possible, we have transitioned positions to work remotely versus in one of our office settings. 

This may be a new concept for you as a job seeker - How do you perform a job remotely?  How do you engage with colleagues or work on group projects?  How do you remain connected to your leader and team?  All valid questions. We want to take the wonder out of what it means to work remotely at Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA). 

What does it mean to be a remote worker?

Working remotely means you work outside of a traditional office.  For many, this means at home, but for others, it may mean working in a safe co-working space.  The work that needs to be done is very much the same as it would be in the office, the difference is the location in which you are completing this work. 

FMCNA has many positions that are currently working remotely.  Some of these roles may be completely remote, while others may have a hybrid model (remote some days/in the office some days).  For more information on the working condition for a role in which you are interested, please ask your recruiter during the interview.

How does FMCNA stay connected?

Our teams have done an amazing job working "together" from a distance.  We use technology to help us connect with colleagues as well as external job seekers, partners, or vendors.  We also check in with each other and don't let too much time go by without talking about work projects or even what's happening with our pets or family.

What does the reality of working remotely look like?

Working remotely may not always be Pinterest worthy, we get that.  There may be a barking dog or curious toddler heard on a call, we may see a friendly cat pop in on the videos, or you may need to take a break to help with homeschooling and log back on at night.  We understand.  We want colleagues to talk with their leaders to be on the same page regarding their unique remote working situation.  Most importantly, please don't stress if a furry friend or family member is heard on a call.  It's not ideal, but it may be part of your new normal. As long as you can perform the job and accomplish the goals set by you and your leader, we don't mind the bark.

Speaking of calls, don't worry about what you look like on camera. Google ways to set up good lighting, backgrounds, and camera angles for video calls at home. Make sure your hair and makeup are decent in case of an on-camera call. Then just let it be. No need to worry about how you look. Just remember that at the end of the day, we are all here to work together.
