Growth, mergers, and other large changes quite often present challenging tasks to HR departments. Frequently, the requirements posed to modern personnel management processes as well as to analysis and planning functionalities can no longer be accomplished by simple means. The nobilia company was faced with such as challenge as well. Traditionally, working with Excel, various databases, and e-mail, HR management established a technologically state-of-the-art foundation for its work with the PERSIS personnel management software. With their extensive PERSIS know-how, the HR management consultants of noventum consulting were able to decisively contribute to the project’s design.


The nobilia company is leading among fitted kitchen manufacturers in Europe. With more than 70 years of experience, currently approx. 3,300 employees, and sales revenues of EUR 1,126 million, nobilia is representative of “Quality Made in Germany” and of an employee-oriented business culture. The company is operating two plants in Verl, East-Westphalia, and another plant in Saarlouis – in the German state of Saarland – is currently under construction and is anticipated to employ a staff of more than 1,000.

In this growth situation, a powerful overall HR software solution was to make HR management sustainable. Within 6 weeks already, as the first component, the job applicant management already had to be integrated and mapped in a unified software environment. That is a competitive challenge for such a short project duration.

The specific tasks:

  • The job applicant management tool from the Persis software package was to be implemented as the HR management product. 
  • Going along with the implementation of the software was the relaunch of the nobilia website. The Persis software was to be matched to the website’s new design.
  • The whole recruitment process was to be mapped in Persis. This includes the displaying of job advertisements, the establishing of a job application platform to which applicants can upload their documents, displaying the status of job applications within the system for HR management as well as the assessment of the different specialist departments during file review and job interviews.


The good adaptability of Persis to existing processes and systems proved to be a very big advantage. As a result, nobilia HR management did not have to familiarise itself with a new recruiting process. The company’s requirements regarding the job application flow were mapped in Persis unchanged: internally utilised terminology, status messages, processing lists of specialist departments, as well as the options for specialist departments to access the system. All relevant data and information are pulled together in Persis; its processing in the fitting design was the task of the agency also responsible for the website relaunch.
