What are any vocabulary or phrases to describe the kind of people who value relationship (with family, friends, colleagues...) more over other things, work, success, etc. ?

  • This may wind up being a matter of opinion. I don't know that we have an actual, agreed upon, word. I would describe such person as a loving person but that is just my opinion. Dhanishtha's link is helpful.

Perhaps consider the term "family man" (for a man, obviously) which describes a man who's family is of major importance in their life.

For a more gender-neutral term, just as a person who puts their career first is called "career-minded", someone who puts their family first is "family focused".

Otherwise, perhaps consider the word loyal, or a synonym of it. A loyal person sticks to their friends and family, which demonstrates they value them rather than simply saying that they do.
