Witam / Witamy sometimes Witaj / Witajcie
Explanation:
Witam / Witamy w Ameryce / nowym domu /biurze etc. - the first instance is when a single person does the welcoming and second when more the one do, so it would be an appropriate form for a corporate welcome. Witaj / Witajcie is less formal and the emphasis here is on the numbers of people being welcomed: one in the first and more the one in the second case.

Witam, witaj, etc


Explanation:
If one person extends welcome - Witam, more than one person - Witamy

If you are addressing one person you may say Witaj (no matter how many people extend welcome) or Witajcie if you extend welcome to more than one person)
