The whole issue of "unwanted attention" is a potential minefield. If someone engages in a little gentle flirtation or asks you out and you like that person then you probably don't consider it harassment. If, on the other hand, someone you don't like does the same (or even compliments you on your appearance) then you may consider it harassment. Hardly an even playing field, is it?
Speaking as a woman it seems to me the best way to deal with such "unwanted attention" is to firmly and politely say that you don't want to go out for a drink/coffee/whatever and discourage flirting and/or compliments. Surely something most of us can do.
If on the other hand it is genuine harassment, with the harasser not taking the hint, then of course the matter should be escalated - to team partner, HR department etc
