The "America's Best" Series

Materials for Educators and Employers

Hiring America’s Best is part of a series of materials written for Give an HourTM and the National Organization on Disability.  They're designed to address the growing need for information and ideas that can help schools, training organizations, and workplaces make a welcoming, productive, and satisfying place for returning veterans and transitioning service members. 

 The series starts with four core booklets:

  • Hiring America’s Best:  Preparing Your Workplace to Welcome Returning Veterans and Service Members offers employers insight into this pool of potential employees, suggestions for lowering stress and enhancing productivity for all employees, and information on effective responses to war-zone stress injuries.
  • Preparing America’s Best:  Twelve Leaders Offer Suggestions for Educating, Training, and Employing Service Members and Veterans presents interviews with leaders involved in a variety of aspects of education and employment of service members and veterans.
