Laurie asks for seating tips at a company banquet. "Should I put people who know each other well together?"
Laurie, that's an important question. It depends on your objective. If you want people to network, shake it up. Mix departments and levels to create an environment for people to meet.
If you want focused dinner discussion, or spouses and partners to get to know each other, you might keep people with those they know.
Do be aware of any seating requirements for visitors, dignitaries or international guests. For these attendees, seating considerations are crucial, for where one is sat reflects the level of respect.
