In an organization, a group of people working for a common goal may not achieve their goal unless they organize themselves in a hierarchy called Corporate Rank Hierarchy (CRH). This principle motivates us to map the concept of CRH to propose a new algorithm for optimization that logically arranges the search agents in a hierarchy based on their fitness. The proposed algorithm is named as heap-based optimizer (HBO) because it utilizes the heap data structure to map the concept of CRH. The mathematical model of HBO is built on three pillars: the interaction between the subordinates and their immediate boss, the interaction between the colleagues, and self-contribution of the employees. The code is also available at https://github.com/qamar-askari/HBO.
