I’m having a bit of a mental block at the moment. I have two buttons in a WP plugin that need to run separate functions. I can only think of one way to do it but it doesn’t sound like the best solution.

Encase each button in a form with a hidden field. Is there a better way?

Or you can place two submit buttons in the same form, give them different names, and test for which name was submitted on the back end. Only the input button that was clicked will be submitted in the form data. :)
