Pensacola, Fla. (November 15, 2022) –  LifeView Group, parent company of Global Connections to Employment, has been awarded the Military Friendly Employer (MFE) designation, signifying its commitment to the military and veteran community from hiring to career advancement and customer service.

LifeView Group supports veterans and their families through its three affiliates:

  • Global Connections to Employment (GCE) is a nationwide team providing jobs and training for people with significant disabilities, including war-wounded veterans.
  • FamiliesFirst Network child welfare services help military families finalize adoptions of children in foster care.

Currently, 183 veterans work at sites in Pensacola, Florida, and in other states across the country. Team members work at military bases, commercial businesses and in health care environments. They also work in behavioral health services, child welfare and administration roles. Our company assists veteran team members in achieving a successful transition into the workforce.  Likewise, once onboard, our Veteran’s Employee Resource Group supports team members to ensure a great work experience within the organization.

“Whether it’s penning a military contract or hiring a veteran, we look for opportunities to support the military community,” said Sandy Whitaker, vice president of corporate development. “They bring valuable skills and experience into the work force and are service and mission-minded individuals. Likewise, we greatly appreciate our contract partners at military sites from Alaska to south Florida.”
