Chennai. November, 2017. Last week, Chennai and its suburbs received 90% of monthly rains in just five days, causing extreme disruption to daily life, schools, public transport and businesses in the city. The water has receded and business life is slowly returning to normal in the severely affected areas. However, fears for more rain continue. In the 2015 deluge, the city’s losses were estimated to be US$16 billion, making it the year’s costliest natural disaster.
While natural disasters can only be dealt after they occur, business disruption can be avoided with quick, flexible workplace recovery. Mr Harsh Lambah, Country Manager, Regus India said, “Chennai has faced at least five major floods this century and the 2015 deluge was among those that most affected the city and its businesses. Workplace options like Regus offer extremely quick workplace recovery in case of any disaster, and with 10 well-placed locations in Chennai alone, businesses have the option to choose cost-effective, convenient locations with no time lost for the business.”

Chennai is huge as an outsourced hub for global and national businesses, and even a few days of disruption can have a huge impact on the image and continuity of the business.
