An Insider's view of Humana Studio_h

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Boston office is very open and built to make conversations & interactions easier. It’s easy to reach out to people (at any level) to ask for help, input, or just have a casual chat. There are 2 community managers who also help to plan events throughout the week for associates (e.g., yoga, happy hour, games). It’s a super lively environment!
