What is a Job Footprint?
A job footprint describes the variety and scope of functions for a given role in an organization.
How Does a Job Footprint Work?
For example, a nurse's job footprint may include administering medication, recording vital signs, and updating treatment files. A managing nurse's job footprint is larger in scope and may also include scheduling nursing shifts, tracking staffing hours for payroll purposes and ensuring the proper maintenance of patient rooms.
Why Does a Job Footprint Matter?
An employee's job footprint indicates the level of responsibility; his or her obligations expand relative to the size of the job footprint. Consequently, as an employee's job footprint widens, his or her pay should increase to compensate for additional levels of responsibility.
