Specialized Assessment and Consulting Earns Second Great Place to Work Certification™

Houston, Texas  — Specialized Assessment and Consulting, LLC,  is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the second year in a row. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Specialized Assessment and Consulting. This year, 96% of employees said it’s a great place to work – 39 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Specialized Assessment and Consulting is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

“We are thrilled to have earned the Great Place to Work-Certified ™ status again as our team is incredibly dedicated and committed to making Specialized the best company it can be. We owe our continued success to our providers in the field and our behind the scenes administrative team who are dedicated to our mission.,” said CEO and founder, Jim Hitchcock.


One thing we hear time and again is the need for support on the job. We have a full-time support and compliance manager who is a highly experienced speech-language pathologist. She consults and offers support and training to our staff. We also support speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and counselors as they move from clinical settings to working in schools. Our company prides itself on offering the best support around.

Another mentorship program we have supports first year licensed specialists in school psychology so they can have access to additional support and consultation during their first professional year in the field. Having this mentorship has been really well received by our team.

Our account managers work with providers to ensure they have the right amount and type of work desired. Whether our providers are new parents, retirees or needing to change the amount of time they are working right now, our account managers work to assure our clients are covered and that our providers have the flexibility needed for this season in their lives.
