There have been several rumors going around that my department is about to have a re-org. I'm a strong performer and have been trying to find a way to get a promotion. With the re-org coming up, it seems that now is probably the time to make it happen. I've been having talks with my manager about what I want and why I think I deserve it. I have also talked with HR and a few other managers. I was hoping to come on this site and find some tips for the things that I should be doing in anticipation of the re-org.
Edit: It's worth mentioning here that my company has never had a layoff in it's nearly 50 year history, so I'm not expecting one now. The rumored re-org is mostly to address our issues that stem from growth over time. Another department just had a re-org and they ended up with a new layer of management, which is what I'm anticipating with my department. Perhaps re-org is the wrong word?
