D2L Again Selected As One Of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

Deloitte Honors D2L By Being Named for the 9th Year

Press Release

Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that it has once again been named a member of the Platinum Club, an honor bestowed upon companies that have been designated as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for seven or more years in a row. This is D2L’s ninth year being named to the list.

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one the country’s most prestigious and high-profile business awards programs. Hundreds of companies undergo a rigorous application process, but only a select few succeed. The award was created by leading Canadian business consultants Deloitte.

In renaming D2L to the Platinum Club, Canada’s Best Managed Companies cited the company’s innovative and effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the outset of the crisis, D2L created a cross-functional response team that based its work on four key pillars:

  • Ensuring employee safety
  • Maintaining the continuity of business and the supply chain
  • Helping in the community
  • Planning for the economic impact of the pandemic

The award also recognizes D2L’s leading role in helping educators make the sudden and unexpected transition to fully online learning and its ongoing commitment to employee engagement, including support for diversity and inclusion, despite the challenges of moving to remote working.

“D2L is a company made up of talented and dedicated people who are expert problem-solvers,” said John Baker, president and CEO of D2L. “We have over 20 years’ experience with using technology to adapt quickly to a rapidly changing world. None of us ever imagined we’d see change on the scale brought on by the pandemic, but when it happened, we had our collective experience to guide us forward. I’m incredibly proud of the people I work with every day and the fact we didn’t waver for a moment from fulfilling our mission — transforming the way the world learns.”
