D2L Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 11th Year

Innovation, a commitment to learning and growth, and flexibility help drive D2L’s success

Press Release

D2L, a global learning technology company, today announced that it has once again earned a Platinum Club member status as part of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. This is the eleventh consecutive time D2L has been recognized by the program.  

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s most prestigious and high-profile business awards programs. Each year, hundreds of companies undergo a rigorous independent evaluation process. Best Managed Companies are evaluated against four pillars: strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities and innovation, and governance and financials.

D2L was re-selected this year for its commitment to each pillar through strategic initiatives like its Creator+ Early Access Program, providing instructors with an easy-to-use content creation experience. Partnering with customers to drive innovation, in 2022, a portion of D2L’s monthly product features and updates came directly from customer input. The company also unveiled a new visual brand identity and narrative that is inspired by the limitless potential of learners around the globe. This award also recognizes D2L’s commitment to investing in its employees’ wellbeing and career development through flexible work options, Wellness Days and a feedback initiative identifying key areas of importance to employees: flexibility, benefits, and growth opportunities.    

“Our people are obsessed with building better learning experiences for schools and across campuses, companies, and communities throughout the world,” said John Baker, CEO of D2L. “We couldn’t accomplish this mission without our people — our D2Lers — who create the foundation for us to transform the way the world learns. We look forward to continuing to empower and support our employees to do the best work of their lives. It’s their commitment to excellence that helps bring our vision to life.” 

“To earn and retain a Best Managed Platinum Club status is a huge accomplishment,” said Lorrie King, partner at Deloitte Private and co-leader for Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “Companies such as D2L who attain this high standard of excellence demonstrate consistent resilience, versatility, and strategic acuity. Year after year, they thrive in a competitive, rapidly changing market. This year’s winners should take pride in attaining this prestigious award in recognition of their significant and ongoing contributions to Canada’s business landscape.”
