Bridgewater's most anticipated annual event is the SCRUM. The SCRUM is a swimming-scrabbling-running race around Bridgewater's headquarters via the pond, stream and rapids that encircle the building. More than 100 employees compete for two coveted prizes — two airline tickets to any destination in the world; and the winner's name inscribed on the SCRUM Cup, the only trophy displayed in the headquarters' lobby despite the many prizes Bridgewater has collected over the years.

Bridgewater employees are extremely social and take full advantage of the services and activities the firm offers. One of the more popular social events is an annual talent show that's so popular the company has to rent out a nearby sports stadium to accomodate all the employees who want to strut their artistic talents.
