The article refers to the problem of the usefulness of the academic psychology of work and organization for the practice of management and marketing. The author concentrates mainly on ethical aspects of the response to expectations directed to psychologists from business. She claims that the standard of constant growth of productivity and effectiveness in enterprises may clash with ethical standards of the professional activity of psychologists, for whom the key value should be the wellbeing of the individual and its development. Ethical dilemmas in psychological services for business have been shown in the context of a model of information circulation between theory and practice. The author suggests that in the quoted model the importance of the so-called ideological filter is underestimated, while such a filter legitimizes certain explanations of solutions to the dilemmas mentioned. She concludes that in the face of the lack of unambiguous ethical standards for psychologists working for business, an individual moral reflection and consciousness related to the roots of their own ethical inspirations and beliefs is essential.
