Find Your COS: a suite of talent initiatives

In March 2022, we launched Find Your COS, a suite of talent initiatives to help address one of the greatest needs of existing businesses and businesses seeking to expand or relocate here.

Find Your COS (pronounced “cause”) will include a suite of programs to help various talent sectors engage with key industries and the local community, helping them expand both their careers and personal lives here.

Find Your COS includes two pilot programs in 2022:

  • Hello Colorado Springs, a wraparound program to encourage summer interns to fall in love with both the company and the region. Hello Colorado Springs is geared for paid interns, offers social and professional engagements outside of their work hours, and provides the cohort with a housing solution for affordability and community.
  • Connect Colorado Springs, a concierge program available to Chamber & EDC member businesses to help them sell the region to potential, new-to-market candidates. A local volunteer will be matched to the candidate based on similar interests and demographics to share relocation tips, neighborhood information, childcare options, recreation ideas, and possibly an in-person tour catered to their specific questions and needs. Wraparound services will include helping the candidates find their people based on common interests, such as activities, faith community, and so forth.
    • Chamber & EDC members of all ages and experiences that love the Colorado Springs region and want to tell our story are encouraged to volunteer.
