... if this Executive and his Team are allowed to be productive!
A new topic came up in different posts these days...

Productivity Top Ten of Employees:
- ... somewhere Great Britain
That's too easy!
Of course there are contexts and national specifics but in most aggregations it is not compared 'apples with apples' ...
I would like to change the POV: The first three listed Countries are classic Industry Nations with a huuuge Automobile production.
Let's face it; since 'Top Gear' organized the 'Parade of British Automotive Greatness' we know there is a Car-Industry in GB [and who wants not to drive in Q's Aston Martin] - but not as big as the ones on the Podium.
And these 3 Winners are interwoven internationally with each other - in many ways ... so do not underestimate the dynamic of bilateral exchange productivity despite of the fact that all of them have very different cultures and ways of Life!
I can only talk about my international experiences in the E-Commerce industry - but let us take a step aside with a (hopefully international :-D ) classic saying in mind:
'the Fish starts stinking from the Head downwards'!
So if you see yourself as a good trained, experienced and well educated Executive and you are in application mode; you should find out first if you would like to work in the potential Company as a member of your future Team! There are many ways to find out ...
Later in the process: Before you ask for salary, PTO, Insurance etc. - you might ask for an Interview with the Boss of your future Boss!
Why? This is an effective way to find out what kind working atmosphere you will find when you start there.
Ask her/him questions in the same way you were asked before. No need to set them on spot, but remember: It should fit for both sides - and so it is absolutely appropriate to get into 'the weeds' with them as well. Good HR people will welcome that, because it shows real and professional interest!
Additionally: Do you really think it makes sense to spend (life-)time at a working place no one of your Executives supports Team-Spirit, Loyality or Integrity? In the long run it could come the day YOU will show up with 'bleeding eyes' to your Job because you can't stand it anymore.
To make a long story short - only join a Company you can make your Team productive and your area of responsibility to a great place people like to work!
Viel Erfolg! ;)
