Not only will a well-hydrated person work more efficiently they are less likely to become ill as water is a key factor of the immune system and helps fight off illness, you need water to digest food and pass out any unwanted bacteria through your urine. When an employee becomes ill it not only disrupts their work it can cost both employer and employee money, as a workload may be left unfinished with an employee being sent home or needing to see a doctor.
