I have been asked to set up a way for an office manager to monitor incoming and outgoing  emails for all of the office employees. I know I can set up the individual accounts under the office managers outlook, but are there any other ways, maybe on ther server? And will I be able to monitor incoming and outgoing mail?  Do you guys guys have any other suggestions?

There is a feature in Exchange called journaling. This will direct the email to another mailbox. I would suggest a dedicated mailbox rather than using an existing mailbox.
It is an "all or nothing" affair - so every message will be journaled.

However - you should get this cleared by your HR people first. Depending on your location and industry type you might not be allowed by local or national laws to do this. Being owner, director or manager doesn't allow you to ignore the privacy legislation that you may be required to follow.
