While working from home during the pandemic seems like the new normal, adjusting to it has not been an easy feat, especially for HR pros. HR Managers are expected to stay connected, organized, and efficient even in a remote work setting. Additionally, hiring processes have changed drastically and employee engagement efforts look a lot different than they used to.
