A sentence from the article about an American woman who is the head of a Dutch company " ... people expect that Americans come in and have more of a bottom-line approach."

The bottom line is the profit made, so they want people who will generate a lot of profit for them

If you're asking what "bottom-line" means, it means cost vs profit margin.
So in this sentence, the Dutchmeister is saying that the prevailing opinion is that Americans approach business being concerned mainly about profit margin over any other considerations (such as quality and safety of the work environment, quality of the product, etc.)
