Looking for something different from the typical corporate environment, Malini joined Pillar. She spent many years managing hospitals in Malaysia and now embarks on her own personal journey to change home care, one elderly person at a time. Malini sings to relieve stress and watches the occasional Korean drama to stress herself out. There's always singing in the Pillar office!

Our Values

Be Kind - Work Compassionately

Be Kind - Work Compassionately

Everything we do we do it from the heart. We believe that a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all have the potential to turn a life around.

Always Be Improving

Always Be Improving

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often. Without change, there is no innovation, exploration or creativity. For good ideas and true innovation, at Pillar, we have interactions, arguments and debates where everybody is invited.

Be Bold - Do Great Things

Be Bold - Do Great Things

Being bold is being firm, sure, confident, fearless, daring, strong, resilient, and not easily intimidated. It means you're willing to go where you've never been, willing to try what has never been tried. At Pillar, we are humble in our execution, but visionaries in terms of aspiration.

Achieve More with Less

Achieve More with Less

At Pillar, we will stay lean and always focus on what’s most important in helping our clients. We never underestimate the power of those simple ideas that grow from seeds to gigantic trees.
