Personnel Badges

Personnel badges are required to gain access to Roche company premises. In addition to a standard photo, each badge has an integrated data medium (chip) and/or a magnetic strip keyed with personal data.

Badges are basically the same for all employees regardless of work location, though some may need to be adapted to meet country-specific requirements. A status bar in red or blue is added to distinguish external or retired personnel from full-time employees.
