Wanted: Successor of Hawthorne Effect

The Hawthorne effect as I understand is that employees were more productive when then understood that they were attended to.
But in today's world of fast life, heavy automation, hectic work schedules, different time zones, shorter attention span, I wonder whether any person will be able to bestow attention as people did in the time of Elton Mayo et al.
I feel the world needs a different model of motivation to eke out more productivity.

Motivation Factors of Human Beings are Unchanged

I find your thoughts about the new motivational model intriguing.
To me it seems as though the increasing depersonalization of the workplace - means that people would respond at least as well now as in the past. It is also hard for me to believe that our species as a result of millions of years of evolution would be apt to very suddenly change our basic response needs in terms of motivating factors.
In today's automated and hectic, pressure-filled work environments, employees need to to feel that someone is concerned for their well-being. The way to show concern may change i.e. different technologies, but the need to feel attended to seems to be a very basic human trait.
I'd love to hear more.
