This article consists of a critical look on the Psychology of Labour and of Organizations in Cuba. (PLO). It has a testimonial and consequently, partial nature. The point of departure for the article is the 90’s, and it presents three fundamental ideas: Before the 90’s: the birth of an genuine PLO was stimulated by the urgent problems of that epoch and the demands of the economic and social development. As a result of the economic crisis of the 90 ‘s, the profile of the Psychology professionals on labor was enriched and this pushed them to make progress in this area of Applied Psychology. In connection with the challenges of the 2000’s, when efficiency and productivity are the present-day objectives of the Cuban society, the PLO is called to contribute to the achievement of these goals. In this regard the author presents a proposal for the management of the human potential in labor relationship among persons and organizations, aimed at greater organizational efficiency, human welfare and sustainable social development. The article finishes with the commitment to continue practicing a Psychology “with all and for the benefit of all”, in order to contribute to the development of our nations and of the integrationist processes taking place in our region.
