D2L Named a ‘Top Employer for Young People’

Leader in Learning Technology Part of a Prestigious List

Press Release

D2L is a nationally recognized place to work yet again. As recently announced, the organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers list have chosen D2L as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2021.

Some of the innovations D2L was recognized for include:

  • Managing a two-year graduate software program featuring rotations through four different teams in the product development department, where participants learn a variety of programming languages and work on various aspects of the company’s product.
  • Developing future leaders through the LEAD (Learning, Engagement and Development) program, which helps employees grow and move to the next level in their careers.
  • Having LEAD participants work on an action learning project to solve a real D2L problem that they present to senior leaders at the end of the program.

“D2L is a company started by new grads fresh out of university, and we’ve tried to imbue our culture with the same youthful exuberance we felt for our work from day one,” says John Baker, Founder and President and CEO of D2L. “It’s about more than being a cool place to work. It’s about the importance of the work we’re doing and the good it’s doing in the world that keeps the best and the brightest coming in and joining our team. This award recognizes that we’re doing some important things right, and I’d like to thank the people at Canada’s Top 100 Employers for recognizing us, on behalf of every D2Ler.”
