When my boss asked for my help with reaching out to the rest of the employees, I was more than happy to offer my assistance. He knew there was a large gap, and that most employees did not feel comfortable going to him for most things. As his executive administrative assistant, one would think they would be the same with me, but I have always had a great rapport with everyone. My first suggestion to him was to look into corporate clothing, because most of the workers did not like the standard uniforms that were required by him.
Everyone must wear black slacks as well as a bright yellow tee shirt provided by the company. No one minded the black slacks, but everyone hated the yellow shirts. They commented numerous times how they felt customers were laughing at them, and I had to agree with them. I showed him a website where he could order new shirts, and he liked it a good bit.
