The HSD Metrics Timeline


HSD is a human resource outsourcing company founded by Deborah Dwyer (current president). Deborah first started the business with one employee and a fax machine. Since then, the company has grown to a team of resources including 4 data management specialists, 12 expert phone interviewers, 2 client services consultants, and 2 senior organizational development resources, and 2 on the administrative services team.

First Employee Survey Launched

Benchmarking of survey data began with HSD Metrics’ first employee survey. In their second year of business they launched the design and implementation of their proprietary software system for employee satisfaction surveys. At this time all surveys were completed on paper while HSD Metrics resources actually gathered the data.

Database Created

An external database of norms for employee survey question items was created due to the number of employee survey responses HSD Metrics had gathered. With over 725,000 collected respondents, this database continues to grow annually. Since HSD Metrics continues to house this data for their clients, they are able to provide an extensive library of questions along with intuitive benchmarks.

360° Feedback Solution

HSD Metrics released their 360-Degree Feedback tool, which focuses on identifying strengths and development opportunities for managers and employees. These opportunities are based on the feedback of peers, leaders, and subordinates. This unique 360-Degree Feedback tool is based on a common set of customized questions that match the organization’s business values and strategies.

Employee Exit Interview (ExitRight) Solution

The introduction of ExitRight®, HSD Metrics’ proprietary exit interview software, allowed the company to extend their metric offerings to include employee retention. Now – 155,000 exit interviews later – HSD Metrics is widely recognized as the leading exit interview company that provides multiple platforms for completing interviews and extensive benchmarks.

Web Portal Launched

HSD Metrics transitioned to providing web-based services across the entire scope of their offerings.

HSD Metrics launched its first web portal in order to provide clients with instant reporting information on exit interview findings. After this advancement, exit interview findings became available to clients online with 24/7 access. The exitrightnow.com reporting tool has continued to expand its features with access to full interview contents, filtered data, instant red flag notification on ethical/legal matters, download features, anonymity options, external benchmarks, and a vast array of data sets that can be aligned with the client’s unique organizational structure.

The knowledge acquired from the exitrightnow.com web portal was than expanded to HSD Metrics’ employee survey services. No longer would clients using HSD Metrics’ employee surveys have to wait for a report. Due to this, surveyrightnow.com allowed clients instantaneous access to data population once a survey has been completed.

ReferenceRight Introduced

HSD Metrics introduced ReferenceRight, a product that gathers references quickly with instant reporting and helps HR departments expedite reference gathering and reporting on an applicant’s previous work experience and performance.

Enhanced Data Reporting

Exit interview notification methods are established that enable daily term files to be sent to ExitRight® with interviews completed before or after the last day of work, thereby resulting in higher completion rates and lower costs for clients. An enhanced charting feature is added to client reporting dashboards to enable turnover cause comparisons for any reporting group or demographic category. Instant Notification services begin when an exit interview respondent observes unethical, illegal, and unsafe activity.

ExitRight Goes Global

ExitRight® interviews are now conducted outside of the US and Canada with respondents in Africa, Asia, South America, and Europe. Participation rates are added to the reporting portal to enable clients to better understand methods of completion (web, phone, paper) and completion rates by their customized demographic and organizational reporting structures.
