The workforce is undergoing a major–and some may say long-overdue–revolution. The past two years have been a lesson in using technology to find new ways to adapt and get the work done. Even as many employees return to the office, the role of technology has taken on new significance.

And the HR department is not immune. Even prior to the pandemic, the HR tech market was rife with new tools and services to help HR professionals take control of an increasingly complex working environment. Convincing the C-suite to invest in these new resources, however, has been a bit of a stumbling block.
