I'll start by referring you to the SE FAQ on accepting answers. This should help explain how things work across all Stack Exchange sites, but I'll answer your questions specifically.
Accepting an answer is never required, but we do usually encourage it. An accepted answer indicates to everyone that the given advice was useful and helped you in your situation. Because the Workplace focuses mainly on more subjective questions that don't have clearly correct or incorrect answers, there are often multiple answers with different approaches which could all be useful. And sometimes the best answer for you is a combination of tactics from multiple answers.
Unfortunately there is no way to mark multiple answers as correct on any SE site. This does make sense, as having multiple conflicting answers marked as correct would add a lot of confusion and be not at all useful to future readers. We do still encourage you to pick the answer that was the most useful to you and accept it. Definitely still use your votes to promote the other answers you liked, and maybe even edit your question to specifically say "I accepted Jack's answer, but make sure to read Jill's answer which was also very useful!" If you want to wait a little longer to get more feedback on your end, that's perfectly fine. We always like to see edits updating us on the situation and explaining which advice ultimately turned out to be be useful or not.
