(AP) — Yelp has decided to shutter three of its offices in the U.S. The reason: most of its employees don’t want to come in to work. In a blog post last week, Yelp co-founder and CEO Jeremy Stoppelman said the physical offices to be closed are in New York, Washington and Chicago. The company says employees prefer to work remotely, so those offices use only about 2% of their space each week.
