Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Usha: "Enna Vishayam" is "What is the matter?" But at times "Enna Vishayam" is also used as a conversation opener with known or familiar people which need not convey the meaning "What is the matter".

"Nalvaravu" "VaraVERkirom" or "VaarungaL" (formal) " "Vaanga" (coloquial)


Explanation:
If you are using this in a formal occasion as you have mentioned, to welcome someone to your company you can use the following sentence in Tamil:
1. "Ungal Varavu Nalvaravu AAguga" (literally translated it will run as May your visit be good/fruitful (in that sense)
2. "Vaarungal" is a simple way of just telling Welcome in a less formal way.
3. "Vaanga" is coloquially welcoming someone (this is used more in conversational language)
4. You can welcome that person to your company by saying "NaangaL ungaLai Varaverkirom" (this literally means--We welcome you.)
"Varaverkirom"--literally means "welcoming"--Varaverkirom is a verb whereas "Nalvarvu" is an adjective.
