Company Culture

A Family of Professionals

It’s no secret that we care about our people. From our core values to our tagline, employees are the center of our culture. Because of our focus on professional and personal growth, individuals are provided the opportunity to learn and lead regardless of tenure. And while many companies say they care about work-life balance, COLSA has and remains focused on ensuring our employees have opportunities to engage in community and family events away from the workplace. We value your family, because you are our family.

Insurance and Benefits

COLSA offers a comprehensive and customizable benefits program.


Employees customize their package by selecting from: major medical health insurance with prescription drug coverage, dental insurance with in- and out-of-network benefits, vision insurance or vision discount options, employer-paid life and accidental death and dismemberment coverage, and employer-paid disability plan options.


If you elect not to participate in our benefit plans, COLSA offers a medical opt-out election that puts cash in your pocket for other family or personal needs. The COLSA Choice program includes options to increase your coverage in areas that are most important to you, for example, income replacement and life insurance for the family. We also provide an Employee Assistance Program to help you and your family during work-life struggles. COLSA insurance programs may differ between locations.



COLSA employees participate in a 401(k) defined contribution plan. Our employees are able to manage their investments online and have distribution opportunities for loans and hardships.
