In early 2018, Brett Minchington, Chairman/CEO at Employer Brand International developed the ‘Employer Brand Architecture Model’ to provide a new way for leaders to strategize how they differentiate their customer experience through their people by aligning the employer brand with the corporate plan.
The key elements of the Employer Brand Architecture are detailed in the figure below.

As part of the assessment for their Level 1 Certificate in Employer Brand Leadership from Employer Branding College, leaders are set the task to apply the model to their company.
Figure 2 provides a recent example of how the Employer Brand Leader at Nmbrs applied the model to her company. The Model establishes a framework to guide employer branding implementation, communication and measurement initiatives at Nmbrs. The model can also be used as a training tool for leaders across all functions to understand how employer branding can be implemented at a business function level and the key actions required to align the employer brand with the organisational strategy.
