There are many enterprise password managers available to help with employee password management. Aside from using a password manager, what else can be done to ensure that employee passwords are secure?

The general best practice says that all the users in a company must attend security awareness trainings regularly in order to be updated in infosec. The companies that provide security awareness trainings platforms have already created tons of content that remind why users should stick to particular rules when dealing with passwords. Because having password manager and using it sometimes make the difference.

One of the biggest concern is users are not restarting their windows systems for long time, which allows the attacker to steal the memory cache. So in my opinion user should schedule their system restart in timely fashion.

I am a big Lastpass user - and I utilize the analysis tool it has.  In my CIO days we had 3rd party IT Controls companies come in and run password cracking tools to identify weak passwords

Make explicit distinction on defining what passwords are personal and what are business/work related and separate those two types in the primary stage to help/ease  applying strict policy on those business/work related  ones and secure them easily next to defining  password vaults/environments related to departments (sales gets its own password environment, engineering gets its own etc )
