On the importance of water

There was a time in the not-to-distant past where I had to pay for clean water to drink, from work, at work, to drink while on the clock.

When did water become an optional business benefit? 

My initial thought was fairly obvious - "Why am I having to pay for clean water to drink at work?"

On the one hand, it's reasonably priced, although unsubsidized, and on the other, what the ???

How is this not a basic business expectation to have clean water to drink, that isn't full of chemicals, etc?

However, after a few weeks, what occurred to me was a little less direct: The other side of this equation is the impact on productivity - if people have to leave the workspace for basic needs such as water (or coffee!) - you might not like what they find while they're out.

Because your competitors have figured out how to buy coffee.
