Note: You will see that you have the ability to "Give a Badge" to other employee.

Resolution

Currently, the Badges functionality, when enabled on Public Profile, will not respect permissions, and all employees will have the ability to see and give badges for other users. For themselves, the users will only be able to see badges, but will not be able to give bages.
