Learn about the National Standard – Growth and Development


Have you ever had a mentor? Someone you looked up to at work. What types of things did they teach you? Did that relationship make you happier at
work? Did that relationship help you to do your
job better? Now think of the best training you’ve ever
taken. Maybe it was at school, a workshop, or even
just a presentation. What was special about it? Did you learn something new that you could
apply to your job or maybe to ANOTHER part of your life? All people have needs. We have basic needs like eating and sleeping,
the need to feel safe, and to feel included, like we belong in some type of community…
but we also have the need to grow… to feel like we have accomplished something… as
well as the desire to learn new things and gain new skills to reach our full potential
in life. This is Tarek. Tarek works in the service department of a
local car body shop. He enjoys working with his hands but he also
enjoys being around people. He aspires to be the service manager one day. Right now, Tarek doesn’t really feel challenged
by his job. He’s been assigned to checking tire pressure
and oil levels. He feels this is a bit repetitive. How could Tarek grow and develop in his career? When a workplace values growth and development,
workers are supported with their goals… these could be to be better with PEOPLE skills,
EMOTIONAL skills, or JOB skills. Employers play an important role in the growth
and development of their staff. In Tarek’s example, there are opportunities
that his workplace could provide, such as providing time or funds for training. His supervisor could also help Tarek to create
a development plan. What are some things that Tarek could do to
be proactive with his development? If Tarek’s workplace valued his growth and
development, the first step he could take is to TALK with his supervisor about his goals. He could meet with his supervisor to learn
how he became a service manager. Maybe Tarek could be given time to watch and
learn from one of his coworkers who does more complex tasks. Tarek could take a course, or a workshop to
learn more skills. There are many things that employees can also
do to promote their own growth and development. Think of YOUR job. What are some of the skills YOU want to learn? How can you make this happen? It doesn’t always have to be something that
costs money. There are a lot of free webinars and resources
available. Maybe you could be a guest at one of your
supervisor’s meetings to get a feel for what they do. You can learn what type of issues they face,
and the job expectations that come with their role. You could ask a leader to be your mentor,
or job shadow someone in a position that interests you. Perhaps you could ask to get more constructive
feedback from your supervisor. Ask questions like “What are some ways I
can improve in my role?” or “How do you think I can grow to take on more responsibilities?” It could be that YOU’RE at the point in
your career where YOU might grow by mentoring someone else. Sometimes meeting with other workers just
to talk about how you dealt with challenging times at work can help all of you grow together. Depending on what else you have going on in
your life; you may want to grow in ways OUTSIDE of work. Maybe it’s being on a sports team, or volunteering
in the community, or taking a class in something you’ve always wanted to try. What is one way that YOU would like to grow? How will this help you to develop in your
career? What can you do TODAY to get started? Growth and Development is one of 13 factors
that support psychological health and safety in the workplace. Learn more at: MentalHealthCommission.ca/NationalStandard For more resources for your workplace, check

Are Factor Investing and Smart Beta Identical? | Nicolas Rabener – Factor Research



Factor Investing has become more
popular over time, especially since the financial crisis
simply because investors realized that there is actually very little Alpha and most of it is just called systematic beta or factor exposure. Of
course investors do want to achieve outperformance so if you're benchmarked
against that S&P500. and the S&P500 is up ten percent
it would be great if you have eleven percent. Now finding fund managers that
generate that extra 1% that you want… that's actually quite challenging.
Factors have shown over the long term, especially if you combine several
factors, that they do allow to outperform an index and that's why they
have increased in popularity. They're the only source of returns that do allow to
outperform the index. It doesn't matter which asset class. One way of explaining
why factors work why they should generate excess returns is that they do
represent risks. And you get effectively compensated for holding them, once
in a while the risk actually takes place there's a drawndwn but over a long time you
can harvest those returns. Factor investing comes from the academic world versus
smart beta is a practical application. Smart beta is nothing than factor
investing in a long only form. So effectively what companies like Blackrock or Vanguard do is: take the S&P 500 and tilt it towards
certain factors. Someone wants to take advantage of the value factor? They can
look for a 'Smart Beta Value ETF'. It's very important to note that there's
a big discrepancy between theory and reality. So what most investors who are
interested in factor investing do is: they tend to read academic research or at least
read what other people are summarizing about the research. What you see is
those returns being published in journals and for example the value factor
giving XYZ present return. Now what unfortunately has happened is that you take the
investment products that most investors have access to, such as retail investors in smart beta ETFs. The returns they get out of those are often a fraction of what you see in academic journals so it's a big disconnect between what people are
reading and what people are getting and that's something worth highlighting. The
opportunity set that investors have especially on the retail side is just
so much more narrow than what you have on the institutional side, where you can
replicate structures that are more similar to what you read in academic
research.
