“Contingency package pays off” – South China Morning Post interviews Carmen Im, City Head of Hong Kong and Macau at The Executive Centre on business continuity plans


Carmen Im, City Head of Hong Kong and Macau at The Executive Centre, recommended serviced offices for business continuity plans in emergencies, in an interview by the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong’s leading English-language newspaper.

As the leading premium serviced office provider in Asia, The Executive Centre is well-known for the favourable advantages it can offer businesses in the current competitive market, even in times of emergencies such as natural disasters, civic disobedience or threats of epidemics. With flexible short-term leases and immediate move-in notice, companies can relocate to The Executive Centre’s serviced offices housed in Grade A buildings, all of which are situated within central business districts, whenever they need.

Emphasising further flexibility, The Executive Centre offers a customisable business contingency package, allowing lease terms to be as short as just one day. “Over the past three months alone, we have experienced a remarkable increase in the number of inquiries from companies looking for immediately available workspaces,” said Carmen. Upon move-in, facilities including workstations, laptops, internet and phone connections, access to meeting rooms and business support are ready for instant use. Contingency meeting facilities are also provided for meeting clients outside the affected areas.

Recently, The Executive Centre signed up tailor-made business contingency packages with firms that require back-up offices for annual disaster recovery drills to ensure their back-up systems and emergency procedures are well-maintained and practical. Carmen is confident that The Executive Centre is capable of helping its clients to continue their business and operations under any circumstances. “The availability of space at our Grade A office centres means that it can be ‘business as usual’ for companies in Hong Kong, regardless of whatever is happening,” said Carmen.
