Was Adam Smith wrong about the satisfaction-effiency tradeoff?

Adam Smith pushed the theory that people are lazy and driven only by compensation. Automation in factories, now in call-centre and clerk jobs as well, are designed to a large degree to exploit this "feature" of human nature. However, too much control over efficiency strips the "meaning" out of work, that part that people do by working harder for no extra compensation, to make their jobs help other people. A study looked at employees of call-centres, janitors and orderlies, attorneys. Maybe it is time to rethink how we motivate and structure work.
