We have a command called ENABLE that allows our Operators to (what else)
enable user profiles that have become disabled. It also gives them the
option of resetting the user's password to the profile name. The command
also sets the user's password to expired, then they are required to change
it the next time they sign on. The command and CPP have adopted *SECADM

One way is to write a CL that does the reset,  have it owned by someone
who has the power,  Have the program run as *OWNER(see CHGPGM).
Only authorize this program object to a select few.
