The Rochester Archives.
This framed certificate was presented for the Chairman's Bronze Award for Innovation for ‘The Rochester Archives’. This is the Rochester business database and not to be confused with Rochester Avionic Archives. The certificate is surprisingly not dated.Chairman's Award for Innovation:
BAE Systems’ Chairman’s Awards for Innovation are a peer-group recognition scheme based around a call for innovative thinking. Presented annually, the BAE Chairman’s Award for Innovation is given to those individuals and teams which have during the year, through innovation, materially aided BAE to improve its processes, practices, technologies, and products to achieve the maximum benefit for customers, employees, and shareholders.
Each year entries are submitted from throughout the company world-wide by BAE Systems’ business units, teams, joint ventures, and other activities. Panels of judges review the entries and from them choose those of most merit. From these, winners are chosen for Silver and Gold awards. The Badge is also awarded in a Bronze category and there is a red and blue scheme badge for those who nominated an individual or team. The winners in the various categories receive a framed Certificate and an engraved glass block in a presentation case.
