Right now I'm working in a cubicle that's kitty corner to a call center with 10 telemarketers in it. I find it hard to think (which imo, is pretty important to my position) but in order to convince my boss to give me quieter working conditions, I'd need to give him some numbers to what kind of 'percentage increase' he would get out of me if I had an office, or a cubicle farther from the TMs.
Are there any know studies or metrics that I can give my boss to help convince him (or more specifically, expedite the process, as he's stated something along the lines of "we'd like to get you setup in an office where you can just code all day without being interrupted")?
edit> the water cooler and all of the appliances (fridge/microwave/coffee maker etc.) are also directly behind me and it creeps me out when people walk behind me and I can't see them.
