There is no particular order to filling in this model, but this process could help to make it clear and straightforward

  1. Start by writing down your company's purpose and culture. The employee experience you plan to design should represent and align with what the company stands for. 
  2. Define your Employee Segments by grouping them into clusters based on their common characteristics (age, race, gender, etc). 
  3. Now that you have a clear picture of your company culture and whom you’re serving, continue with other boxes including Physical Environment, Employee Relationships, Key Stakeholders, Key Activities and Tools & Technology boxes to list all vital materials, important processes, and invaluable allies.
  4. The bottom line of the Canvas represents the bottom line of your employee experience model: what's in and what's out. 
  5. The last step is linking the boxes and tidying up. You are now ready to roll out a more robust employee experience strategy - go for it!
