How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I have weekly 1:1s with my team & quarterly 1:1s with all employees and they know they can come to me at any time. Making myself accessible to my team & the rest of the company is extremely important in my role and will always be one of my top priorities. It is important for employees to know they have someone they can trust & go to for anything.
