Hawthorne Effect: Intellectual Fraud?

This effect was at the origin of a major change in the HR management.
Unfortunately since then, the study of Elton Mayo has been highly challenged by other research.
Could it be just a placebo effect?
 

 
Hawthorne Effect - Mayo

Although they had an enormous impact at the time these experiments were conducted they have since been statistically and empirically discounted based on validity and reliability. They were an excellent try and certainly sparked great leaps forward in the humanistic perspective of managing employees in the workplace, however their relevance to today's academia is for referencing and first year studies only and they have little impact on the real world.
