They say that variety is the spice of life. And that definitely applies when hiring. In fact, OpenView’s Talent Team has made a big push this year to focus on diversity in hiring.

While all have good traits, there’s one person among the four you’d always want on your team in a closing role. Check out the infographic to find out.
