  1. Make sure there is a comprehensive, written harassment prevention policy in place.

  2. Attend training on harassment, discrimination, and retaliation prevention.

  3. Refresh your knowledge about your organization's harassment prevention policy and your role and responsibility in creating a harassment-free workplace.

  4. Understand what behavior can constitute harassment and make sure that your own behavior is above reproach by avoiding sexual comments, banter, jokes about appearance, etc.

  5. Distribute your organization's harassment prevention policy to all employees and remind them who they can go to if they have a concern.

  6. Communicate expectations for party behavior to all employees. Remind employees that a holiday party is technically a work activity. Include expectations for appropriate attire and for alcohol consumption.

  7. Consider organizing a daytime celebration in lieu of evening festivities.

  8. Plan an organized team building activity to enhance team spirit.

  9. Allow employees to invite their spouse, significant other, or guest.

  10. During the event, keep an eye out for inappropriate interactions and intervene. Take any complaints of harassment seriously and take prompt, effective steps to address them.
