Credly Badges Assignment

SparkFabrik uses Credly to issue digital badges to team members who have demonstrated specific achievements and made significant contributions to the company. These badges are a way to recognize and reward your dedication to our values and mission.

What are Credly badges?

Credly badges are digital representations of a skill, achievement, or experience that can be shared online. They are a way to showcase your accomplishments and skills to the world.

How to obtain a badge

To obtain a Credly badge, you must meet the criteria for that badge. For every badge, there are specific requirements that you must fulfill to be eligible to receive it, and these requirements are outlined in the badge description that is available on the Credly platform.

The company reviews contributions and achievements periodically and issue badges to those who have met the criteria for each badge. If you believe you have met the criteria for a badge but have not received it, please reach out to your team leader, or to an HR or DevRel representative.

When will I receive my badge?

Badges will be awarded during our all-hands meetings or other company events.

Upon receiving a badge, you will be notified via email, and the badge will be added to your Credly account (if you don't have one you will be invited to create one). You can then share your badge on social media (there's a handy LinkedIn integration), your website, or wherever you want to showcase your achievements.

Why are we doing this?

At SparkFabrik, we believe it is important to recognize and reward your dedication and commitment above and beyond your day-to-day work. We want to celebrate your accomplishments and contributions, and make you an inspiration to your colleagues and the community.

This is unrelated to your salary and career path, which are managed through other processes and reviews within the company; no one is penalized for not having badges, and no one is ever forced to get them.

We just want to give you a way to show off your achievements and be proud of your contributions.
