The answer depends. Can you currently connect using another computer today?
If you can, then you should be able to connect with your Mac.
Microsoft offers Remote Desktop Connection client for Mac OS X
<http://www.microsoft.com/mac/otherproducts/otherproducts.aspx?pid=remotedesktop client>
You can use a Mac VNC client, such as Chicken of the VNC, to connect to a VNC server on your Windows system, such as TightVNC.
LogMeIn.com allows remotely connecting to PCs from Macs via a browser such as Safari. You would have to run the LogMeIn server on your PC.
There are other services that allow you to connect Macs and PC over the internet.
However, many times computers systems at work are behind firewalls that block incoming connections. Companies that do allow remote access often times require the use of VPN software. Depending on the VPN being used, there may or may not be a Mac client. My company uses a Cisco VPN server and provides employees with the Mac Cisco VPN client.
