Not enough info. The phrase "thin client RDP" -- the latter standing for "Remote Desktop Protocol" -- only tell us HOW one connects to the work server, not the actual program they're running.

There are a number of client programs from Microsoft, Citrix and others. A good start would be asking the IT department how remote PCs connect and what software they need to use. For heaven't sake DON'T tell them you're trying to connect with a Mac, if they're like most IT departments I've run across they will first scorn you and then actively try to sabotage you.
