The idea is pretty simple: independent of your current workplace, you can do educations, do classes, get certifications that represent a certain level of skill, knowledge, …
Acclaim provides a (commercial) service that allows employees to acquire “badges” that aren’t bound to any employer.

So, just saying: in case “badges” will be used here, it might be nice to have some sort of bridge into this world.
