Economy and well-being. Happiness and development. Since the Capability Approach has engulfed the scenario of macro-economic policies, these two pairs have emerged as key elements of a reflection that increasingly has sought to encompass its ethical foundations. The centrality of the concept of "person" and - above all - the need to rediscover the elements, has guaranteed the cability Approach a successful application that has spread far beyond the scope of economic policies. On the other hand, and paradoxically, the ethics of capacity has not yet been applied at that micro-economic system in which we find ourselves more closely: the business entity. With the exception of non-profit organizations, it is not yet recognized the Capability Approach can make a decisive contribution both to organizational development that the happiness of the people who "live" in the organization. Despite frequent claims of humanistic management and openness to organizational empowerment strategies, businesses still do not seem to have really grasped what the "people factor" is at the foundation of their very being. Recognize the value of this foundation, then, it means first of all rediscover and adequately replace the concept of "person" within the business practices; means, then, trace the attempts which, as empowerment, have already blazed a trail in this direction. Finally, it means re-read these attempts at ethics light of capacity, to rediscover a deeper meaning, which, in addition to strengthening them, allows to "enlighten" the "hidden face" - originally human - relations that structure not only the strategies organization, but the organization itself.
