FMO strives to foster a healthy working environment. We took steps in 2012 to formalize flexible or ‘flex’ working, which supports a healthy work-life balance by allowing staff to work remotely whenever they see fit. Flex working is already practiced by many of our front office staff, many of whom work from home at least once a week.
FMO also promotes health in the workplace through various sports events that we organize or participate in throughout the year. 2012 was the second year that FMO employees participated in the Roparun, a marathon relay race of approximately 520 kilometers from Paris and Hamburg to Rotterdam, which raises funds for people suffering from cancer.

FMO also offers all employees a periodic medical check-up program, with special attention to the impact of frequent travel when relevant.
