Based on a field survey, and qualitative in nature, the results showed the clear importance o the psychologists in organizations, in spite of it is still being based on clinical models. The labour of those kinds of professionals, that should be seen as someone in charge of knowing the corporative world reality, in order to comprehend the phenomena that occur inside corporations, was found invisible in terms of type of typical actions such as professional recruitment, employee's evaluation and training, indicating that the psychologists need to work hard in order to have their work more visible.
