PULIDO-MARTINEZ, Hernan Camilo. From employment to post-employment: on the plasticity of psychology as regards the production of workers' subjectivity. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 322-331. ISSN 1984-6657.

In this article the re-organization of the "psy complex" is considered as regards the contemporary transformations that are taking place in the world of work. Toward this end, a review of the changes in the place and operations of psychology with respect to the employment and post-employment social forms is conducted. It is argued that the role of psychology in the production of workers' subjectivity is transforming amidst the mutations that have been avidly debilitating what is at present known as "good work".These mutations are characterized by an increasing rate of incertitude in aspects such as work contracts, rosters, labor spaces, and interpersonal relationships. It is concluded that in this context, psychology plays a central role for the production of new subjects that the capitalist organization of work requires.
