Re: Promotion Request
I, Jimmy Myers, am now serving as Acting Foreman in the Production Department. I was requested to take on this post when Mr. Sam Liam retired from his Foreman position on October 23, 2010.
I am honored to take up the responsibilities of Mr. Liam as he has trained me up during the last two years. However, from my past two months’ experience as Acting Foreman, the subordinates are not very cooperative with me and have belittled my authority. Nevertheless, I have managed to ensure that all productions are running smoothly to meet the required targets.
It will be easier if I am confirmed as Foreman to run the Production Department more efficiently. Hence, I would like to request a promotion for myself quickly as there is a huge project coming on next month and I would like to ensure the full and willing cooperation of all the staff.
I hope that you will consider my request favorably to upkeep the good image of the company.
