The suggestions strike me as great ideas that most companies will ignore, because their ossified management structures will resist change. If you are data-savvy and work for one of these companies, read the situation and decide if the company has any realistic chance of changing course. If you decide it doesn't, finding a better situation is your best alternative.
In most cases, HR is the last bastion of the old guard. That makes the chosen audience doubly ironic!
