Here in New York City there's one of SHRM's major chapters: HR/NY. In correspondence and on conference badges, it is typically shortened to "HRNY."

Now if you're like others, you have learned to pronounce the acronym for the Society for Human Resources Management as "sherm"; how might you pronounce "HRNY"?

Yes, HR thought leaders at their finest...

My friend works at Management Recruiters in Vancouver, WA; their toll free number is 877-695-4688. I just called him.

The problem is that I'm so used to dialing toll-free numbers that start with "800" that I did it when I called him.

I invite you to do the same.

Thanks Steve. s it true that HRNY is so big they're created a subsidiary group, called HRNY-A, pronounced "hernia"? YOWZA!

Also, maybe 800-695-4688 could be an RBC advertiser- companies could use it as a perk to attract techies...
