The Desire2Learn Advantage
Desire2Learn offers a cool office space featuring an employee lounge/cafeteria with free healthy snacks every day; fruit and veggie platters every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; free organic and fair-trade coffee and tea; self-serve kitchen areas on each floor; as well as subsidized beverage vending machines that fund Social Committee Events. Our head office is located in a convenient area of downtown Kitchener where it’s a short walk to cafés, shops and restaurants. Full-time employees will receive free parking, although the office is easily accessible by the public transit system.
Employees are free to take a break and enjoy the free snacks, relax on the rooftop patio (complete with BBQs and hammocks!), or challenge a teammate to a game of ping pong, foosball or air hockey.
Our open concept office reflects the open-mindedness and approachability of our teams and management. Employees enjoy an energetic and fun environment where the dress code is casual and there are lots of opportunities to participate in many organized social events. The company-subsidized Social Committee sponsors a variety of social events for employees every year including an annual canoe rally, golf tournament, potluck lunches in the park, company BBQs, delicious birthday cakes each month, family picnic, bus trips to sporting events, discounted theme park tickets, skating parties, and much much more.
Desire2Learn also hosts an annual “Winterfest” party at the end of the year which includes a dinner and dance for employees and their guests. In addition to this, we have a Kids Holiday Party for employees and their children. Families can take part in crafts and games, as well as visit with Santa!
Plus, we are dog friendly! Our employees can bring in their dogs which promotes a collaborative and connected environment for all; be sure to stop and visit with a dog who is hanging out in the office!
