While it’s great for collaboration, HMA’s open office concept can sometimes create challenging auditory distractions. That’s why a set of earbuds are part of the standard welcome package to new HMA employees, and they’re also the answer to today’s trivia question.

Apple crunching, ice machine crushing, sporadic guffaws, foot tapping and conference calls—all noises that can be slightly distracting. That’s when we pop in the earbuds and plug into music to escape the commotion. Tuning out now!
