I've just found out that my new hire has "history" with the team that sits across from us. She used to work with them in a different division and apparently there were personality conflicts when they worked together six years ago. I had planned to place her in a spot facing that team; I have the option of placing her in a seat on the other side of the aisle so her back is to them.
Should I ask my new hire if she's OK sitting near them?
Ask the other team if they're OK sitting near her?
Ignore it and hope for the best? (That never seems like the right choice...)
Thanks for the advice.
