We’re pleased to announce that Best Practice Certification (Best Practice) has been acquired by FCB Holdings Pty Ltd (FCB), which is part of The Citation Group. FCB is a specialist workplace compliance solutions provider, traditionally known for its strengths in delivering employment and industrial relations services.
Best Practice is FCB’s second acquisition and will join the company’s newly formed Quality Division with plans to rapidly expand the company across Australia and New Zealand.
This merger will in no way impact the high-quality services Best Practice delivers to its clients or the relationships it has with partners and suppliers. The same brilliant team will continue working at the company, and it will be business as usual for our people!
Kobi Simmat, CEO at Best Practice, said: “Since 2004, Best Practice’s core focus has always centred around the specialist services we deliver to our clients, ensuring that they add real value and strengthen businesses. It’s an exciting time for Best Practice, and I’m confident about the company’s next growth stage. With the team at FCB and The Citation Group backing Best Practice, we now have access to a realm of resources that will undoubtedly enhance what we have always done for our clients.
“FCB is a workplace compliance-focused company, so it made perfect sense to merge with a business that not only aligns with our growth goals but also has a strong synergy that complements and enhances both brands.”
FCB and The Citation Group have over 80,000 happy clients across Australia, New Zealand, and the UK, and with a diverse portfolio of workplace compliance solutions, Best Practice’s clients can now unlock even more value. From employment and industrial relations advice and HR consulting to migration services and HRIS technology solutions – these are just some of the ways we can support your business.
FCB was acquired by The Citation Group in 2021 and is the first business, outside the UK, in Citation’s international growth strategy. With plans to rapidly expand across the Australian and New Zealand markets, the company has hit the ground running not only by diversifying through strategic acquisitions but also through organic growth.
FCB is made up of five core businesses that fit together and complement each other in providing a comprehensive compliance solution for our incredible clients. The team of workplace relations lawyers and consultants provide a suite of solutions spanning legal services, HR consulting, contracting and management, migration services, HR technology solutions, as well as ISO certification. Its multidisciplinary approach means FCB examines workplace relations issues from every angle so that they come up with the most effective legal or management solutions for businesses.
