Is the ideal organizational culture a “family” or a “team”?

When I’m on an intake call with a client prior to launching a new search, we spend much time discussing the company’s organizational culture. I ask them to describe it to me. Often, I’m told, “We are more a family than a typical employer / employee environment”. We all understand what that basically means. The employer and leadership strive to genuinely take care of their employees. They treat their employees with respect and empathy. Take an active interest in their lives outside of the workplace and often engage in social activities and have fun.
