Compassus hires new Chief People Officer

Compassus, a leading national provider of innovative home-based health care services, has named Priscila Feijó Mattingly the new chief people officer. Mattingly brings more than 20 years’ experience in all aspects of human resources, including building and transforming the people function to achieve business goals, designing and implementing employee-centric practices, and leveraging culture as both strategy and a catalyst for growth.

In her role, Mattingly will serve as a key member of the executive leadership team and will be responsible for all human resources initiatives. She will help cultivate and reinforce Compassus’ culture and develop new strategies to support the company’s organizational goals. 

“Priscila’s impressive track record leading human resources functions in multiple industries, coupled with her commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, makes her the ideal candidate to help us grow and evolve as an organization,” said David Grams, chief executive officer of Compassus. “We continue to expand our service lines to provide added support in home-based care, and investing in recruiting, retaining and developing top talent is critical to our success. Priscila is the right person to oversee our HR function and will be a great asset to our team.”

Mattingly is an accomplished human resources executive who, throughout her career, has achieved high levels of employee engagement and retention; created diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging programs; designed learning and talent management programs, architected organizational and succession frameworks; and revamped compensation, benefits, and wellness plans to support employer of choice aspirations.

“I am passionate about building the culture and environment that attracts, supports, develops and retains purpose-driven talent,” said Mattingly. “The leadership team at Compassus has built incredible momentum over the last years. I am excited to add to their efforts and continue cultivating the culture of Care for Who I Am to support colleague engagement while delivering the exceptional care our patients and their families have come to expect from us.”

Most recently, Mattingly served as chief human resources and inclusion officer at another health care organization, where she successfully led recruitment, engagement, development, and retention efforts in the midst of the pandemic’s unprecedented labor crisis. 

Immigrating to the U.S. from Brazil nearly two decades ago, Mattingly is fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and English. She earned a Master of Science in global human resources management from the University of Liverpool in England, along with a Bachelor of Arts in communications and marketing from FIAM in São Paulo, Brazil. Mattingly holds memberships and certifications from the Association for Talent Development, the Society for Human Resources Management, Human Capital Institute, World at Work Compensation and Benefits, Human Resources Leadership Forum and Center for Coaching Certification.
