1) London branch welcomes you.
2) London branch welcome you.

Dear teachers, please teach me which sentence is correct.

My classmate just joined my company. I put up the above sentence on Facebook just to welcome him.

I think sentence 1) is correct, I just want to confirm here.

Thank you.

Kamshing.

I'd have written 'Our London branch welcomes you' or 'Welcome to our London branch'.

In the UK, it's common to use a plural verb with a collective noun, so The London branch welcome you would also work, but I prefer Welcome to our London Branch or We welcome you to the London Branch of xxx.
