The evolution of management and technology of information associated with the moral and economic crises we attend in the last decade determined deep transformations in the way we manage and design organizations. The understanding of human factor role in production, mainly the use of concepts employed in human resources management, became inadequate to explain the phenomenon of work and to clarify its situation in the economic-organizational contemporary frame. In this article I seek to contribute to today’s reconstruction of people management conceptual corpus analyzing John Locke’s notion of work in general and Adam Smith’s notion of abstract work.
