Co-workers and Clients FAQ
Four of us in my department are working on a big presentation. We've known each other and get along fine, but the other three are doing most of the work when they meet in the office. I'm the only telecommuter and I feel like I'm left out. What can I do?

You should deal with this problem quickly; the longer it goes on, the more you'll be kept out of touch. This can ultimately reflect poorly on you if your manager thinks you've been actively involved. The next time you're in the office, sit down with the other three and express your concern. Remind them of your interest in, and ability to contribute to, this project. Review your telecommuting schedule with them, and make sure you can find times to meet while you're in the office. Last, arrange to make the best use of conference calls and/or e-mail to keep in touch even while you are telecommuting.
