What’s Eating Google [Infographic]By: Shawn Hess - April 19, 2012
According to this next infographic from medicalsupplimentalinsurance.com, Google is going to great lengths to make sure their employees are well fed, informed, and healthy consumers of good food products. This graphic is loaded with interesting facts about how people choose what they eat and how Google’s HR department is taking advantage of analytics to help supply them with better choices.
