The CLFM is moving forward but drags a deficit ball

The Franches-Montagnes Leisure Center (CLFM) had yet another eventful year, but it now has the tools to do better. The general meeting of shareholders of the institution taignonne was held Tuesday evening in Saignelégier. During the meeting, the 2021/2022 accounts, with a deficit of 970,769 francs, were approved. The coronavirus has weighed down the last financial year. Without cantonal aid, the loss would have been close to 1.3 million francs according to the figures revealed by the Board of Directors (CA). According to its new president, Michaël Joly, the results are similar to those of the previous year and much better than those forecast in the budget.

Some sectors have done well despite the health crisis. Both the hotel and the restaurant achieved higher revenues than last year. The CLFM recorded more than 16,000 overnight stays, ie approximately 6,000 more than during the previous financial year. But according to the CA, this dynamic has led to a need for labor which has had an impact on payroll costs. However, the coronavirus is not the only crisis that the institution has had to manage.

Tools to do better

Following the changes in management that have shaken the CLFM in recent months, an external audit was commissioned by the former Board of Directors. The results of the report were presented to the shareholders during the session. These are ways to improve the management of the Franches-Montagnes Leisure Centre. The advice relates in particular to human resources but also to the issue of governance between the Board, management and shareholders. A particular tool makes it possible to better define the borders, as explained by Sarah Gerster, vice-president of the Board of Directors of the CLFM:

Iovka Kouzmova will be supported in her tasks. In particular, it will be able to count on a management team made up of a technical manager (José Boillat) and a restaurant manager (Roger Sommer). The person in charge of finances has not yet been found. The CLFM has therefore already begun its restructuring after the many turbulences experienced. If the path is still long, the impetus is given. /nmy
